 About Medicine and Me

Medicine and Me meetings aim to provide an outline of current best practice and future updates of important conditions and to give direct voice to patients and their carers and enable them to discuss their concerns and reflections on the impact of diagnosis, investigation and management.

Physicians and surgeons and indeed all healthcare professionals continue to learn from and be inspired to greater efforts to improve care by hearing directly from patients.

The Programme and tickets, free of charge for patients, carers, relatives, students and trainees are available on the link below: 

BSL Translators will be in attendance, and for any further special access or specific needs, please email us at info@nervetumours.org.uk by 31 March 2020
