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.
