UKAOS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING - WEDNESDAY 6TH DECEMBER 2022, 16:00–17:00 hrs in a virtual format, please put the date in your diary.
Hear about transformation of urgent care for cancer patients in Cheshire and Merseyside.
New on the Health Innovation North West Coast Podcast – hear about transformation of urgent care for cancer patients in Cheshire and Merseyside. Health leaders have collaborated to create pathways and processes which ensure that cancer patients can avoid visits to A&E and potentially long stays in hospital awaiting decisions and treatment. Caroline Kenyon is in conversation with Dr Ernie Marshall, Consultant Medical Oncologist at The Clatterbridge Cancer Centre NHS Foundation Trust; Dr Ragit Varia, Acute Medical Lead for the urgent cancer care programme based at Mersey and West Lancashire NHS Trust; and Mel Warwick, Programme Lead.
Dear UKAOS member, It’s time to renew your membership.
I am very pleased to announce that the UKAOS has a new secretariat provider in place called Media1 Productions. With this change in secretariat, we are upgrading our membership system with how we store your data and therefore we need all our members old and new to re-register allowing us to keep in contact with you all. The annual membership will continue to be FREE OF CHARGE for the upcoming membership year. If you do not renew your UKAOS membership, you will no longer receive any UKAOS related information and therefore not be considered a UKAOS member.
