Dear Members & Colleagues,

Guidelines have been issued by the RCPI to postpone meetings of more than 10 individuals. Also, in light of the increased demands on our health system currently, our members need to be on site and available to our patients. We acknowledge and thank our pharmaceutical sponsors for their continued support of our meetings & look forward to our 2020 autumn meeting in October. We are very grateful to everyone who has worked so hard to prepare for the Spring meeting, especially our sponsors and colleagues in Killashee House Hotel.
