    Rescheduling of the PMP Workshop

    Save the date! In light of the continuing issues around the COVID-19 pandemic, it has not been possible to reschedule the Pathology Workshop for the near future. Therefore, the Core Committee has proposed a new date of the 10-11th December 2020 for the PMP Pathology Workshop in Basingstoke. As before, the Core Committee will send information to all EuroPMP members closer to the date. If the COVID-19 pandemic has not resolved by this time, the Core Committee may need to reschedule to an even later date. We remain hopeful, however, that the medical emergency will have subsided by December, and so we ask all pathology-interested members to block the time…
