The BIR is taking a number of measures to:
• Reduce the risk of NHS personnel mixing for non-essential reasons and spreading the virus
• Reduce risk of BIR staff contracting and/or spreading the virus
• Account for the fact that some contributors may need to focus more on NHS responsibilities
These will be reviewed regularly and may be revised or supplemented in line with changing circumstances.
We regret that all BIR educational events due to take place between 16 March and 10 September 2020 will be postponed until autumn 2020. Revised dates will be made available shortly.
If you are booked on any of these events your booking will automatically be transferred to the rescheduled date and you will receive an email confirming the new date. We aim to let you know as soon as possible but please bear with us during this period.
We apologise for any inconvenience caused. This precaution is in the interest of the health and wellbeing of our delegates, speakers and staff.
All events scheduled to take place after 10 September are scheduled to take place as planned.

To reduce the risk of contamination, most BIR staff members will be working from home. This means that telephone calls coming into the office may need to be diverted, and this may reduce our ability to answer calls immediately. We strongly recommend you use email to contact us (see below) and we will get back to you as soon as possible. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.
