Novel coronavirus (COVID-19) and the Child Health Technology 2020 conference

Thursday 19 March 2020

The health and safety of conference delegates, speakers, and exhibitors is our highest priority. We have been closely monitoring guidance published by Public Health England regarding the outbreak of novel coronavirus (COVID-19).

In light of recent developments, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone CHT2020, due to take place on 20-21 May 2020 in Sheffield UK.

We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.


The postponed conference, Child Health Technology 2021 (CHT2021), will now take place on 2-3 March 2021 in Sheffield UK.

Further details can be found on the conference website.


All delegates will automatically receive a full refund in the next three weeks. The full refund includes the two-day conference fees, drinks and dinner reception fees, and visit to the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre.

Sponsors can specify whether they would like to transfer their sponsorship to CHT2021 or receive a full refund of their sponsorship fees.

The conference organising team is not responsible for any travel, accommodation, or other associated costs.


Please contact the conference organising committee if you have any questions or concerns.
