Safety is the priority as we welcome people back into RCP buildings

While COVID-19 restrictions were lifted in England on 19 July, the RCP is continuing to exercise caution while welcoming people back onto our premises in London and Liverpool.

Our priority is the safety of everyone using our facilities and we have modelled continuing COVID-19 safety measures on recent Public Health England announcements. We will implement the GOV.UK guidelines: https://www.gov.uk/guidance/working-safely-during-covid-19/events-and-attractions.

Here’s what we are doing to keep everyone safe and what you can do to help.


We are continuing to be cautious in our venues, paying special attention to the way we use our space, capacity and ventilation.

We offer hybrid and online opportunities also, for those people wanting to continue meeting together and attending events virtually.

Our museum will remain closed to the public until January 2022.

Before arrival

We are encouraging and recommending that guests undertake a lateral flow test before visiting our premises, and only attend if it is negative.

Upon arrival

We will ask you to check in with the NHS Test and Trace app or provide your details, and to do a temperature check with our thermal scanner.


We are continuing to encourage people to wear face coverings inside our buildings.

Hand hygiene

We encourage regular hand washing and also have in place hand sanitising stations.


Enhanced cleaning measures are in place in all our facilities throughout the day.

Feeling unwell?

Please do not attend our buildings if you are feeling unwell with symptoms of COVID-19. The list of symptoms are provided by NHS England.
