After careful consideration, the Age Anaesthesia Association has decided to further postpone the upcoming Annual Scientific Meeting which was due to be held in Bristol on Thursday 20th – Friday 21st May 2021. 

In line with the third lockdown and hospitals currently functioning at the highest national incident response level, the council feels that the current situation remains too precarious with no guarantees on travel restrictions, availability of study leave for delegates, social distancing and revised capacity for the venue.

With this in mind, the council plan to reschedule the Bristol meeting to 2022 but the situation remains flexible so we will keep you updated as and when we have more information.


On a positive note, we are pleased to announce that we have decided to host a virtual event in 2021 to ensure that members and registered delegates are able to engage in interesting and educational content safely and at their own convenience.

This event will take place on Friday 21st May 2021 with delegates having the opportunity to view the content on demand after this date. Full details, including the programme, will be available on our website shortly. 

There will be a small charge of £20 for AHPs, £50 for members, £70 for non-members (including one year’s membership) and £75 for non-members (excluding membership).

If you have already registered to attend the ASM which was due to be held this year, you will have already been contacted separately about your booking. If you have not received your email, please do check your junk folder.

If you have any questions whatsoever, please do not hesitate to contact us via the contact page. Alternatively, we will update the website soon with more information about the virtual course.

We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause, thank you for your understanding and patience.
