Delegates will not be allowed to participate in the digital event if the registration fee has not been paid in full.

4. Student rates
Students who are professional members (not lay members) of Diabetes UK are exempt from the registration fee. Non-member students will receive a discounted rate.

This letter must be uploaded at point of registration to be eligible for the discount.
5. Amendments to your booking, cancellations and refunds
Any amendment to a delegate’s registration must be made in writing (which can include email) and sent to Diabetes UK.

To qualify for a full refund for the digital event, notification of a delegate’s intention to cancel must be received by Diabetes UK before 4pm Monday 12 April. No refunds will be payable if notification of cancellation is received by Diabetes UK after this date.
