It is with enormous regret that we have to advise the Cancellation of the 2020 BRITSpA Annual Scientific Meeting, due to take place on 16thand 17thSeptember at the Hilton Metropole, Birmingham and the inaugural Core Course ‘Essentials in Spondyloarthritis’ scheduled for 16thSeptember.


After careful monitoring of the rapidly evolving COVID-19 pandemic, and with full understanding of the crucial role that you all play within your organisation and community together with the growing uncertainty about the duration of the current situation, our Board of Trustees and Executive Committee felt that a decision had to be made at this time.


We would like to give our thanks to all speakers and everyone who has contributed to the development of the excellent 2020 conference and course programmes. Unfortunately it is impossible at this stage to know when we will be able to reschedule both of these events, but please keep checking our website.


For the most up-to-date information on COVID-19 (coronavirus) guidance please check the BSR website. We send our best wishes to all our colleagues at this difficult time.
