Hutton Seminar series

Important information for event attendees and external visitors

coronavirus (COVID-19)In light of the most recent advice from the UK Government about stopping non-essential travel and increasing social distancing, we have postponed all our events and public engagements as a precautionary measure.

Our sites have been placed on a restricted access condition, which means that only staff who are doing essential work can get access. All other colleagues will be working from home or staying at home even if they are unable to work remotely.

We have excellent and free to use video conference and conference call systems and are happy to make these facilities available to help you engage with us. Some meetings may still take place via video conference with participants joining individually from their own locations; check with the relevant member of staff for advice.

As the situation is constantly changing, please check the UK Government and NHS websites for the latest advice and updates.

If you have any questions or concerns, please email events@hutton.ac.uk.
