Due to the Annual Congress being cancelled, please see the below update on all competitions that have been advertised in relation with our Annual Congress.

Regrettably, we decided to cancel this competition. All abstracts that have been submitted until now won’t be taken into consideration.

This competition will go ahead as planned, just virtually. A winner will be announced online.

Extended Deadline for all applications is Monday 27th April 2020.


3.       Delaney Medal Competition

This competition will go ahead virtually and we extended the deadline for abstract submissions.

We decided that 6 trainees with best abstracts will be invited for an online presentation via ZOOM. Selected candidates will be given all necessary information for the online presentations prior; it is very likely it will be scheduled for late May (date TBC). Three judges will be involved in assessing all abstracts. A winner will be announced online after this date.

NEW Deadline for all applications is Friday 24th April 2020.


4.       Medical Essay Competition

This competition will go ahead as planned and we extended the deadline for essay submissions to September.

A winner will be announced prior to the National Patient Safety Conference that takes place on Friday 13th November. We expect the winner to give a short presentation at this event.

NEW Deadline for all essays is Friday 25th September 2020.


You can use the same application/abstract forms that have been sent to you previously.
