#IAmAndIWill | SCPN conference 2019

We are celebrating World Cancer Day on February 4th 2019 by holding our annual SCPN conference. The venue for this year’s conference is The National Museum on Scotland in Edinburgh, a beautiful and inspiring building which we hope will be a fitting venue for the messages we will hear throughout the day. We are currently in the thick of organising our programme and look forward to some influential speakers from academia, government and practice. Most importantly we will hear the patient’s voice.

Booking will open shortly so please look back to reserve your place. We look forward to welcoming you to the event.
