COVID – 19 Join us with Confidence


Dear Friends and Colleagues, 

Following a year of turmoil, hard work on the frontline, lockdowns and virtual events, we are delighted to be hosting our 2021 BIHS Annual Scientific Meeting (ASM) face to face.

This year, the ASM may look a little bit different. Though the current Government Guidelines for conference and events doesn’t require us to do so, the BIHS Executive Committee has decided to implement some simple measures. This is to ensure that you, as a delegate, feel confident and safe to join us in Brighton.

We strongly encourage all delegates to follow the  COVID-19 safety measures we have implemented;

  • Social distancing is supported where possible and please respect other delegates personal space. Seats will be further apart than you are used to, please do not move them closer to one another.
  • If you are showing symptoms, please do not attend. Instead, email bihs@in-conference.org.uk to change your registration to 2022 or get a full refund.
  • The venue staff looking after our meeting will all be wearing face masks and we encourage you to do the same. BIHS will provide complimentary hand sanitizer and facemasks at registration, please use the sanitizer frequently and wear your mask indoors;
  • The venue has implemented enhanced cleaning, for further information, please click here.

The programme may be changed at short notice. Session Chairs may be different than advertised, we ask for your understanding should this situation arise. Together we can make this ASM a celebration of being together again (safely) after 2 years apart.

We understand that making plans has been tricky and to encourage you to join us, we have now removed the late registration fee. All delegates can register at the early bird rate for the conference. (Those already registered at the late registration fee will be contacted shortly to arrange the refund of the difference).

As a professional Society, we trust that our members and guests will use their own judgement and help us in ensuring that all attending the BIHS ASM have an enjoyable and safe time in Brighton.

See you all there,

Best wishes,

 The BIHS Executive Committee
