Virtual event

Adhering to the government guidance on reducing Covid-19 transmission through social distancing, it will not be possible to hold our annual Fellowship Day in person this year. Instead, we warmly invite you to an evening of online Fellowship celebrations on Thursday, 1 October. 

A live stream of the evening ceremony will be viewable from the Fellowship section of our website and is open to all RCVS members and associates.

The evening will also be recorded and made available to watch after the event has taken place.
