NCCNN summer 2013

Published: 09 June 2013


PLEASE SAVE THE DATE: Monday 23 September 2013

Royal College of Physicians, Regents Park, London

We are delighted to announce that Norgine has agreed to provide an educational grant to support the 2013 conference and to provide bursaries to those nurses who would otherwise have to fund their own travel. There is no registration fee for colorectal and stoma CNS and specialist screening practitioners. The RCP is a very convenient venue, just 5 minutes’ walk from Regents Park tube or 12 minutes by bus from Euston. It has a purpose-built lecture theatre, and high quality catering, with the option of eating out in the ‘physic garden’ on a dry day!
There will be a full programme of workshops (details in our next newsletter) and we will be inviting exhibitors from pharmaceutical and medical device companies to take part once again.
Registration is now open
