**It is with heavy hearts that we announce the postponement of the Society for Acute Medicine’s Spring Conference, SAMLondon, on 30 April–1 May 2020 at the Novotel London West due to the growing concerns about COVID-19. While we have been closely monitoring the recommendations of the World Health Organization (WHO) as well as the UK government over the past weeks, recent developments have made it clear to us that the most responsible action to the increasing uncertainty, is for us to postpone the conference.
This has been a very difficult decision to make as we were all looking forward to getting together for SAMLondon. With acute medicine being at the forefront of the current Covid-19 crisis, we are aware that study leave for frontline staff is also likely to be cancelled for the foreseeable future.
All those who have registered for the conference have been emailed**
We are also in the process of letting abstract submitters for SAMLondon know and hope to have everyone informed of their options by 2000hrs on 18/03/20. For those who have been accepted, we are offering an automatic acceptance to our 20th anniversary conference, SAMGlasgow taking place on the 28-29 September 2020. Anyone who is unable to come to SAMGlasgow, will be offered an automatic acceptance for either of our 2021 conferences which are taking place in Liverpool on 28-29 April 2021, or in London on 4-6 October 2021.
KEY DATES for future Conferences will be announced soon
Opening SAMGlasgow on 01/04/20
