Since COVID-19 began transmitting in the UK, we've all been doing our bit to reduce the spread of the disease - so we can protect ourselves, our families and patients. At Red Whale we have been thinking hard about how this should impact on our face to face courses.

Our top priority - as always - remains our delegates, team and patients safety, so after careful consideration, we have come to the tough decision to
cancel our face to face courses between May and June and contact our delegates to provide a suitable alternative.

We haven’t taken the decision lightly. We considered all options but there are particular concerns with bringing large groups of health care professionals together at this stage in terms of transmission and the impact on NHS service provision. 

Given that the course of the virus is likely to be prolonged and at present the annual appraisal cycle continues, we're focussing our efforts on delivering our courses online to allow for responsible social distancing.

As you will be aware, this is a very difficult time for small businesses. We are doing everything we can at this time to offer the best customer service we are able to under these exceptional circumstances and we ask for your understanding.


WHAT TO DO if you are booked on a Red Whale course in May or June:

1-Please DO NOT TRAVEL to the venue on the day.  We have sent our delegates an email to let them know what happens next. 

2- When you receive your email please reply to the email you have received or email us at to acknowledge that you have received this information so we don’t continue to try and reach you unnecessarily.



• The same 6 hours of practice-changing updates from the same great GP presenters you get on our one-day courses - available to watch at your own pace, from your own home, as many times as you wish, for 12 months.

• A copy of the printed handbook sent to the address you entered at the time of placing your order.

• The same 12 months access to you would expect from attending the course – to help you answer questions in real-time in consultations, access 500+ articles and find lots of further learning activities, reflection and QI/Audit.

• A series of FREE ‘Big Ask’ webinars to accompany the Online Course. This is your chance to ask any burning questions on the updates we covered on the course and hear answers to your colleagues' questions.

We have worked hard, in our award winning studio, to offer you the same interactive learning experience as you would on our face-to-face courses - with focussed learning activities, energisers and microskills to practice and much, much more. 

We’re disappointed to have to do this but given the exceptional circumstances we all find ourselves in, we think this is the right thing to do.

Best wishes at this difficult time and stay well,

The Red Whale Team
