Events

In light of the UK Government’s decision to reduce the impact of the COVID-19 virus, we have taken the decision to reschedule all in person events hosted by the BUSOG from Monday 16th March 2020 until further notice.

In the meantime, the newly elected BUSOG committee is excited to bring you a new series of events for you to get involved! 

Upcoming events

Pregnancy in the Time of COVID-19: The Perspective of Clinicians and Families

The BUSOG is excited to announce the first event in our new monthly webinar series!

Details: 19th September 11:30-2:30pm

Facebook event: https://www.facebook.com/events/1612664255562465

Over the last 6 months, the major changes healthcare settings have undergone have greatly affected patients receiving pregnancy care and the healthcare professionals treating them. How does Covid-19 present during pregnancy? What if the mother tests positive? What are the recommendations for limiting mother to child transmission?

Join us to hear about the experiences of a representative from Women’s Network who worked on developing the RCOG pregnancy and Covid-19 guidance, and a doctor who practiced on O&G wards throughout the pandemic.

Notice: The webinar will be held on Zoom. We will be posting the link to access the meeting across our social media on the day before. THERE IS NO SIGN-UP FORM FOR THIS WEBINAR. Spaces are limited so we recommend logging on 10 minutes prior to start of the webinar (at 11:20).

Certificates: A feedback form will be circulated during the webinar. You will receive a certificate of attendance AFTER completing this form.
