Training for health professionals

For the past five 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 6th annual Mesothelioma and Lung Cancer Study Day will take place on 11 June 2020 at our Reading offices. The speakers will be:

  • Mr John Pilling, Consultant Thoracic Surgeon, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust
  • Marcus Remer, Consultant Medical Oncologist, Basingstoke and North Hampshire NHS Trust
  • Nick Maskell,  Respiratory Consultant, Bristol
  • Anthony Edey, Radiologist, Bristol
  • Professor Cookson, Mesothelioma Research Network
  • Matthew Phillips QC, Barrister, Outer Temple Chambers
  • Anne Moylan, Mesothelioma UK
  • Alison McCormick, Coroner
  • Lynne Squibb, Hampshire Asbestos Support Group

The study day is aimed at nurses, doctors, consultants and all other medical professionals who treat and care for, or have an interest in the treatment and care of, people with mesothelioma and lung cancer.
