Mesothelioma & Lung Cancer Study Day 2020

In light of the situation and the ever changing advice from the government concerning COVID-19, we have regretfully made the decision to postpone our mesothelioma and lung cancer study day on 11 June 2020.

Given that many of our speakers and attendees are from the medical profession, we appreciate that they are likely to be stretched in the coming months due to the spread of the virus and the knock on effect and strain it is causing on our NHS.  We also had patients that wanted to attend who would appreciate a postponement for when they feel they can safely attend events like this again. 

I hope that you can understand our decision in the circumstances and that you will be able to attend on the rearranged date.

  • Mr John Pilling - Consultant Thoracic Surgeon, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust
