Training for health professionals

For the past four years Boyes Turner has held a free annual Mesothelioma and Lung Cancer Study Day at our offices at Abbots House, Abbey Street in Reading.

We extend an open invitation to all those involved in the fields of mesothelioma and lung cancer to attend our study days which are accredited by the Royal College of Physicians and the Royal College of Nursing.

We have been very fortunate to enjoy some excellent presentations in the past, including Professor Loic Lang-Lazdunski, a Professor in thoracic surgery, who discussed the current research and trials in mesothelioma. We have also had Dr Peter Szlosarek, a Clinical Senior Lecturer and Honorary Consultant in medical oncology, discussing oncology research in mesothelioma and the recent Adam trial results. In 2014 Eric Lim, a Consultant Thoracic Surgeon, was able to bring us up-to-date with the current mesothelioma clinical trials including MARS II. Consultant Lung Cancer Nurses, Anne Moylan and Naomi Horne, both of whom work on behalf of the charity Mesothelioma UK, also attended to discuss the role of the lung cancer nurse and Mesothelioma UK.

Our 4th annual Mesothelioma and Lung Cancer Study Day took place on 22nd September 2017 at our Reading offices. The speakers were:  

  • Dr Stephen Ellis, Consultant Thoracic Radiologist, St Thomas’ Hospital 
    “The radiology of asbestos related diseases and their mimics”
  • Dr Sam Hare, Consultant Chest Radiologist, Royal Free London NHS Foundation Trust “Ambulatory Lung Biopsy – a new model for the UK”
  • Scott Bentley, Operations Director, Resource and Environmental Consultants Ltd 
    “Asbestos in the workplace”
