Welcome to the 5 Nations Health Protection Conference Website

The aim of the 5 Nations Health Protection Conference is to provide a focus for Continuing Professional Development for: Consultants in Communicable Disease Control; Consultants, Specialists and Trainees in Public Health; Scientists, Health Protection Nurses and their colleagues in the epidemiology and control of infectious, non-infectious diseases and environmental hazards.

The conference is organised jointly by staff from Public Health England, Public Health Wales, Public Health Agency in Northern Ireland, Health Protection Scotland and the Health Protection Surveillance Centre for the Republic of Ireland.

Corona Virus Update COVID-19

Conference Cancellation, 17th – 18th June 2021, Dublin

It is with great disappointment that we have to inform you that due to the continuing on-going unpredictability of  COVID-19 restrictions, the conference due to take place from Thursday 17th – Friday 18th June 2021 at Trinity College, Dublin, has been cancelled. We feel an important aspect of this long-standing event is the opportunity for all cadres of health protection staff to present their work in a supportive environment – along with it acting as a forum for discussions and  interactions on key issues.

For delegates who’s registrations and abstracts were carried over from 2020, we will process refunds within the next 10 working days and will confirm once this has been actioned. 

If you have made independent accommodation arrangements, then please check the cancellation policy with the accommodation provider directly. 

On behalf of the 5 Nations committee, I would like to thank you for your support and understanding and we will be in touch once plans have been formed for 2022. In the meantime, If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact our Conference Organisers (5Nations@in-conference.org.uk)

Looking forward to seeing you all at the bigger and best-ever 5 Nations Health protection conference in 2022!!

Kind regards,
Sent on behalf of
Dilys Morgan
Chair of 5 Nations Health Protection Conference Committee
