FORUM 2020

ICC Birmingam - 11th & 12th June 2020

A look at the 2019 Oncology Forum

The ICC Birmingham, Thursday 11th & Friday 12th June 2020

The UK Oncology Forum now enters its fourteenth 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, treatments, current research and the politics surrounding the delivery of cancer care within the UK NHS.

The Faculty set an objective three 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 BTOG for 2020, they join the ACP, BOPA, BASO, MacMillan, UKONS, UKOMiC and SABR. They join a valued and well respected group of organisations and hold fringe meetings ahead of the Forum. During the exhibition our colleagues share their valuable work and share best practice. This ultimately positively impacts the patients that we treat.

The ACP will hold their AGM for the fourth consecutive year.

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.

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 2019 UK Oncology Forum had a waiting list of cancer healthcare professionals for the fifth year in succession. We would encourage early registration to avoid disappointment.

Countdown to 2020 Forum event

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 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 or Jak at Jak@athenameetings.com

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