In the unlikely event a course/event is cancelled by the ORUK, we regret we are unable to refund any delegate travel and/or accommodation costs that have already been incurred by the delegate, including administration charges.

Orthopaedic Research UK shall assume no liability in the event a conference is cancelled, rescheduled or postponed due to an unintended event, Act of God, unforeseen occurrence or any other event that renders performance of this conference impracticable, illegal or impossible. For purposes of this clause, a fortuitous event shall include, but not be limited to: war, fire, labour strike, extreme weather or other emergency.

Please note that while speakers and topics were confirmed at the time of publishing, circumstances beyond the control of the organisers may necessitate substitutions, alterations or cancellations of the speakers and/or topics.
