Conference 2020

Thursday 27th August 2020

After a difficult year for us all, with the cancellation of almost all pilgrimages from the UK to Lourdes, we will be holding a special virtual conference of the BLMA, as well as the AGM, on 31st October.

This will be an important event where the focus will be on making safe pilgrimages in a post Covid-19 world. There will inevitably need to be changes to the way we take the sick to Lourdes, and as Healthcare Professionals with an intimate and unique knowledge of the processes involved, we need to be able to give well thought out advice as to what is required.

The BLMA will be using the conference to explore these issues further and will then provide ongoing advice to pilgrimage directors and tour operators as to what constitutes safe practice.

It is expected that this event will be of great interest to many. We will accommodate as many delegates as functionality allows.

The application form and further details will be available shortly on this site. Please apply early, to enable planning of workshops, etc. to work effectively.
