FORUM 2018

ACC Liverpool, L3 4FP - 14th & 15th June 2018

ACC Liverpool, Thursday 14th & Friday 15th June 2018

The UK Oncology Forum has been running for twelve years and is fast becoming the most popular UK cancer clinical educational meeting. The meeting continues to flourish and increase in both stature and size.

The UK Oncology Forum is unique as it is the only UK national pan tumour meeting that brings together leading national and international oncology experts and discusses post ASCO highlights. The meeting addresses, new therapies and treatments, current research and the politics surrounding the delivery of cancer care within the UK NHS. No other national pan tumour meeting covers this range of vital subjects.

The Forum is ABPI code compliant with an emphasis on the patient being central to all of the educational activities. We adhere to full disclosure guidelines. The Oncology Forum is fully endorsed by UKONS, The ACP, BOPA and is accredited by the RCP. All of these organisations will attend the 2018 meeting along with other important UK cancer organisations, including fringe groups of the NCRI.

The meeting is fully supported with NO registration fee, ensuring that cancer colleagues from all over the UK can attend this highly educational multi-disciplinary meeting. The 2017 UK Oncology Forum had a waiting list of cancer healthcare professionals, for the third year in succession.

Countdown to 2018 Forum event

The ASCO meeting is recognised as being one of the most important and worthwhile healthcare, scientific congresses to attend within the international oncology meetings calendar. UK healthcare professionals are finding funding increasingly difficult to attend the congress (along with other international cancer meetings). We hold the meeting post ASCO, 14th & 15th June and bring the crucial highlights from the ASCO meeting to share with our colleagues.

Sponsors and industry supporters can also take the opportunity to hear about insights from ASCO, current trends, challenges and treatments around cancer healthcare. The clinical streams are chaired by the leading tumour experts in the UK. They all endorse this valuable and highly reputable meeting.

The exhibition and networking area is an ideal industry platform to share information and updates about products, research or services to the attendees, including the national experts that attend the meeting.

Kind regards
