Certain times of the year are busier for events than others and this should be considered when planning events that need to be held centrally. There is more limited capacity between January – March during the main recruitment rounds and June and July during ARCPs. Pressure on venues is especially high during these periods.

When booking events with an annual programme, such as Regional Training Days, ideally a full programme of dates for the year should be submitted up front. This will allow all events to be released and advertised at a single point in time.
