Meet your local healthcare engagement team

We know that our community greatly values the dedication and hard work of the health care professionals involved in their care, but we also recognise that with ever greater restrictions on resources the job of caring for those affected by brain tumour is becoming harder and harder.

We provide a range of support and information services aimed to compliment the care given by healthcare professionals and we can tailor this support to an individual and their family. To view the services we offer, please take a look through our support and information pages or contact our Support Team directly.

We are also happy to work directly with healthcare professionals and have local healthcare engagement workers across the UK who can tell you more about the services we offer.

Nurse & AHP Study Day 2017, Friday 19 May

This annual event for nurses and allied health professionals brings together the brain tumour community to share and develop best practice across the sector. There are talks throughout the day from experienced, knowledgeable speakers on topics that are crucial to the care of those affected by brain tumours as well as opportunities to network with colleagues.

For more information and to book your place on this exciting and worthwhile day please visit our Eventbrite page.

If you have any questions about the 2017 Nurse & AHP Study Day and to join the mailing list please email Constantinos Chrysaphinis.

Attendance can contribute to your CPD – based on self-assessment – and there will be an opportunity to present an example of good or innovative practice, or an audit which has changed and improved practice.
