In March 2020, in agreement with the 4 surgical Royal Colleges, it was agreed that we would be postponing all exams and courses until September as a result of the Covid-19 outbreak, although this will be re-reviewed on a regular basis.
FGDP(UK) would wish to reassure candidates that any dates that are cancelled will be rescheduled once we are able to do so. We will not be running May examination diet anymore. December diet will go ahead as planned, we will update you if the situation changes.
