Future Patient Meetings

Dear Patients & Carers
Our next complimentary and in-person Patient/Carer meetings will be held in Edinburgh, Cardiff and London as we seek to make these activities as accessible to everyone across the UK as possible.   No matter how far you have to travel, you'll be welcome at these events.  The dates are given below.  

As always these events will include lively and relevant presentations from leading specialists from the region together with an opportunity to meet and discuss issues with fellow GIST patients and their families.

We are here to help. Please contact Sharon Bethell if you have any questions or suggestions for topics.

PAWS-GIST Clinics happen at Addenbrookes hospital in Cambridge three times each year. The clinics are hosted by Dr Ramesh Bulusu and Patient advocate Jayne Bressington, who are joined by a multi-disciplinary consortium of specialists,  all working to improve treatments, undertake research and find a cure for PAWS-GIST Cancer.

If you are a PAWS-GIST cancer patient please register to attend a future PAWS-GIST clinic using this link.
