It is with great regret that because of the ongoing situation with Covid, unfortunately the 32nd Annual Clinical Negligence Conference, which had already been postponed from June 2020 to 29-30 April 2021 at the Bournemouth International Centre, has had to be cancelled, which is obviously a huge disappointment to us.

We will be running our second online ‘(Not The) ACNC’ from 09.45 – 13.00 on the 29th and 30th April, featuring some of the excellent speakers that were due to speak in Bournemouth. Full details and booking will be available soon and we hope those of you that were planning on coming to the conference in Bournemouth will join us online.

The next face-to-face Annual Clinical Negligence will now take place at the Royal Armouries Museum in Leeds on 23-25 March 2022, and we hope it will be third time lucky with the ACNC belatedly taking place in Bournemouth on 22-24 March 2023.

Delegates who had already booked their places to attend the 32nd Annual Clinical Negligence Conference in Bournemouth, and all confirmed exhibitors and sponsors, will automatically be transferred onto the next ACNC in Leeds in March 2022, but if you are unable to attend then you can have your delegate fee refunded. As you will know, AvMA is an independent charity with no state funding and the income from conferences is vital to our charitable work. The lost income as a result of COVID-19 is a severe blow to us. If you do need to cancel a place you have already paid for, please consider whether you could donate part or all of the fee to AvMA. You can do that by simply notifying us that we can retain the fee you paid, or part of it, or donate online at Please e-mail if you have any queries.

If you had booked accommodation in Bournemouth via MICE Concierge then this will automatically be cancelled for you.

We do hope you will join us online on 29th – 30th April for ‘(Not The) ACNC’ and we sincerely hope we will be able to welcome you to a face-to-face AvMA event again soon. Many thanks for your understanding and co-operation.
