FORUM 2019

Hilton Brighton Metropole - 13th & 14th June 2019

Hilton Brighton Metropole, Thursday 13th & Friday 14th June 2019

The UK Oncology Forum now enters its thirteenth year and has now become a very popular UK pan-tumour, clinical, educational meeting on the UK Oncology educational calendar. The meeting continues to flourish and increase in both size and stature.

The Forum is unique as it is the only UK national pan-tumour meeting that brings together leading national and international oncology experts to discuss post ASCO highlights. The meeting also addresses, new therapies and treatments, current research and the politics surrounding the delivery of cancer care within the UK NHS.

The Faculty set an objective two years ago to make the Oncology Forum a more collaborative setting. We invited our colleagues from other cancer organisations to join us and to utilise our meeting as a networking and sharing best practice platform. We are delighted to report that this model has been a huge success and we continue to offer FREE meeting and exhibition space to colleagues that support continued education and training within the oncology space.

We are delighted to welcome our colleagues from BASO for 2019, who will be running a pan tumour surgical clinical session on Day One of the meeting.

NLCFN, HEE, HCC UK, NABCOP and NOTCH will also join our friends and colleagues from an impressive line-up of other valued and well-respected cancer organisations, the ACP, BOPA, UKONS & UKOMiC. These organisations will hold fringe meetings ahead of the Oncology Forum. We provide them with FREE meeting space to enable them to plan future educational activities for our colleagues across the UK. The ACP will hold their AGM for the third consecutive year. By collaborating with these organisations, the UK Oncology Forum becomes a broader, more inclusive, vibrant and richer environment. Collaborating and sharing ‘best practice’ with colleagues impacts directly on the patients that we treat.

We also offer FREE exhibition space to Cancer Charities, to enable them to share the invaluable support that they offer to cancer patients to the attending HCPs.

Countdown to 2019 Forum event

The meeting is fully supported, CME accredited with NO registration fee, ensuring that cancer colleagues from all over the UK can attend this highly educational multi-disciplinary meeting. The 2018 UK Oncology Forum had a waiting list of cancer healthcare professionals for the fourth year in succession. We would encourage early registration to avoid disappointment.

The ASCO meeting is recognised as being one of the most important and worthwhile cancer 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 Forum post ASCO, 13th & 14th 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. All our clinical chairs endorse this valuable and highly reputable meeting. The meeting is ABPI compliant.

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

Please visit the website regularly for updates regarding the programme and any other updates. If you have any queries about the meeting please contact Lisa Young at Lisa@athenameetings.com

If you would like to sponsor the 2019 Oncology Forum please contact our Congress Director Sharon Poole from Athena Meetings and Events Sharon@athenameetings.com

On behalf of the Faculty, we look forward to welcoming you all to Brighton and to another successful, educational, interesting and worthwhile 2019 UK Oncology Forum,

Kind regards

Professor Ruth Plummer
UK Oncology Forum Chair
