*** UPDATE 13/3/20 **
It is with regret that the Royal Veterinary College has made the decision to cancel the Endocrinopathic laminitis lecture due to be held at our Hawkshead Campus on Wednesday 1st April.
Being mindful of current UK Government public health advice about the risk of COVID-19 being spread through close contact, we feel that this is the correct decision at the present time.
We will instead record the lecture and send a link to the recording once it is available. Please can you ensure that you advise all those who you may have purchased a ticket for. Thank you for your understanding
