  • Work Email address (as specified on your online registration form)

You will receive one CME point for attending a Satellite Session and getting your badge scanned. Badge scanning by exhibitors is not compulsory. If you DO NOT wish to disclose personal information to exhibitors, then do not allow your badge to be scanned. 

PLEASE NOTE: BAUS Staff may scan you on entrance into the Satellite Sessions; this is purely for a count of attendance at these sessions.


BAUS 2022 Format

We are pleased to be returning to a face-to-face format for BAUS 2022 at the ICC Birmingham, after a two-year hiatus following virtual conferences in 2020 & 2021. Virtual attendance will, however, still be available: content will be streamed live from the ICC Birmingham and will be available to watch via the BAUS 2022 Platform.


Certificates of Attendance

Certificates will be emailed to delegates from Wednesday 22 June 2022. Certificates for the BAUS Academy teaching courses will only be issued to those who complete the relevant assessment form and obtain a pass rate of 80%.


Conference Catering

New for BAUS 2022, delegate registrations will include complimentary lunch each day. Hot Buffet lunch will be served on Monday 13 June & Tuesday 14 June and a Deli Bistro lunch on Wednesday 15 June.

Lunch will be available from Exhibition Hall 3.

This meeting has been accredited with CME points:

  Mon 13 June 2022 6 points
  Tue 14 June 2022 6 points
  Wed 15 June 2022 6 points

Each Satellite Session is accredited with 1 CME point.


COVID-19

We will continue to monitor the national & global situation, and follow guidance issued by the UK Government and relevant Health Authorities. BAUS will be guided by social distancing measures imposed by the UK Government and relevant Health Authorities. We will follow social distancing measures and hygiene regulations.

Currently, face coverings are not compulsory. However, you may wish to wear one walking around the venue or during more crowded times such as lunch and exhibition viewing. Please remember to bring one with you to the meeting as you may still be required to wear one in scenarios such as transport to the venue.


Crèche

There will be crèche facility provided at BAUS 2022. The crèche will be run by Nipperbout who will run a daily timetable of activities. The crèche will be FREE,  but we do require all those who require use of this facility to indicate during the online registration system by 31 March 2022. PLEASE NOTE: if we do not get any uptake by 31 March 2022, BAUS will not provide a crèche facility.

There will also be a room dedicated to parents attending BAUS 2022, for feeding and storage of family equipment.

The crèche will close each day for an hour over the lunch period (12.30-13.30). This allows crèche staff to take a break. Parents will therefore need to collect their child and feed them. Children can be returned when the creche reopens at 13.30

Nipperbout supply a healthy morning and afternoon snack. NB: Four hours is the maximum time a child can stay in a crèche without being collected for food (three hours for children aged three years and under).


Delegate Badges

For security purposes, all delegates, accompanying persons and exhibitors must always wear the official BAUS 2022 delegate badges at all times, in order to be admitted to the conference centre and social events. Badges will be issued from the Registration Desk.

Mentoring Sessions

This year we are offering free mentoring sessions throughout the BAUS Annual Meeting.

They will be offered by five trained mentors and a mentor appraiser whose role is to assess the mentors. These sessions are designed to offer you help with your professional life, training, career development and to discuss any new opportunities that have presented themselves to you recently. Problem areas may also feature, if you wish.

There will be a feedback form which we would like you to complete and leave at the mentoring reception desk. There is usually a high demand for these sessions, so please be sure to book a slot as early as possible and avoid disappointment. You will need to place a deposit of £10 with your booking which will be repaid after your completed session.

Mentoring Sessions can be booked via the online registration site.
