Further to the COVID-19 rapidly evolving situation, national/international travelling restrictions and NHS cancellation of study/teaching leave, Infomed has either put in place the capability to run courses online on their original dates, or as necessary, some courses have been postponed and we will re-arrange the delivery.

Later in June, we will assess the COVID-19 situation, NHS advise and situation with our faculty and will release further dates for booking.
