    “Excellent conference, well organised, superb speakers. The AHP section brought areas of interest for all health care professionals.”  (BNOS 2014)
  • Basic and applied scientists involved in translational research linked to both neuroscience and cancer, and also groups focussing upon “device development” for diagnostics and therapy.
    “There was a good balance between scientific and clinical presentations.” (BNOS 2014)
  • Leaders in health service commissioning, delivery and research in the public and private sectors.
  • Patient groups, research and support charities and politicians involved in shaping the national agenda through fundraising, community action and debate.

There will be an education and training day with parallel tracks for clinical, scientific and public participation. This will include workshops, multi-disciplinary team discussions, patient communication demonstrations, hot topic short debates and skills-based training demonstrations.
“This was my first foreign congress. It was very interesting to join as a nurse specialist in neuro-oncology from abroad. The combination of expert and cultural diversity was very nice.” (BNOS 2013)

Groups/Committees wishing to meet during the conference can reserve committee rooms included in their registration costs.
“Excellent Conference. Really enjoyed the event and a good networking experience.” (BNOS 2013)
