CANCELLED - UPDATE - VPNG Country Conference Torquay - VPNG has made the difficult decision to cancel the Country Conference planned for the 24th October. Hosting a Conference at this time was deemed to be irresponsible, especially in light of the erratic and highly contagious nature of the coronavirus coupled with the wider implications and influences this pandemic will likely have on our society. VPNG hopes you understand and support our decision.
VPNG want to know about the 'heroes' among us. During this pandemic you probably know a colleague who has demonstrated a strong commitment to perioperative nursing, promoted team collaboration or provided excellent care to their patients.
