Following the postponement of the 2020 conference, the BGS Transfusion committee are pleased to announce a re-scheduled conference will take place in April 2021.
BGS Transfusion 2021 will take place on the Jubilee Campus, Nottingham University from 19th April to 21st April 2021. All lectures, meals and accommodation will be on site within easy walking distance. The whole campus is fully disabled compliant and adapted bedrooms are available.
Jubilee Campus is easily accessible by major road links (M1), rail links (Nottingham) and air links (East Midlands Airport), situated within the beautiful, vibrant city of Nottingham.
The conference will follow its usual format with cutting edge lectures, workshops and case studies - we've even dedicated a session to the Covid-19 pandemic and the NHS response. Being on campus there will be plenty of chance for that all important networking. There will also, this time, be a chance to hear from our commercial colleagues during some short presentations on new developments within their companies.
There is also the opportunity for you to have a poster displayed and obtain a discount to attend the full event, as well as the opportunity to present by submitting an abstract. The event will be supported by a Commercial Exhibition and on site social events.
Delegates will have free access to the on site gym and swimming pool on University Campus.
BGS Transfusion is to be held on:
The BGS Committee are monitoring all government guidance relating to the COVID-19 pandemic and, as such, will be implementing appropriate precautions for the duration of the conference in 2021.
We have reserved rooms with a maximum occupancy far exceeding the predicted number of delegates, therefore enabling adequate social distancing.
The social programme will include a light-hearted quiz on the first evening, with the gala dinner on the second evening.
Set within its own peaceful lakeside grounds only two miles from the vibrant city of Nottingham, the Jubilee Conference Centre and hotel provides the perfect environment for the BGS Transfusion Conference.

The charity chosen by the BGS committee is Harvey's Gang.
Harvey's Gang provides ill children with tours of the blood transfusion and other laboratories.
Harvey's gang started with Harvey Buster Baldwin, who passed away on October 6, 2014. Harvey became ill with acute myeloid leukaemia at age six. He ended up spending many weeks in hospital. Whilst spending time at Worthing Hospital, (West Sussex, England) Harvey was curious about the vacuum air tube which would take his blood to Pathology. The children's ward arranged for Harvey to visit the laboratories.
Harvey enjoyed his time in the laboratories and got to wear a lab coat and badge with trainee biomedical scientist written on it. His mum said “He really enjoyed his tour,” His father added “To give him that insight was absolutely marvellous and it made him, as well as us, understand why it takes so long to process blood.” A year later Harvey sadly lost his battle with leukaemia.
