Patient Day Scotland

The first Patient Day Scotland was held at the Queen Elizabeth Teaching and Learning Centre, Glasgow 24 February 2018.
Thanks to our sponsors, Norgine, Convatec and Amgen, we were able to host over 80 people, including bowel cancer patients, their relatives, colorectal and stoma nurses, speakers and exhibitors.

The guests were able to listen to a variety of presentations including Advances in bowel surgery, a patient’s perspective, through to Lifestyle and Exercise to promote recovery.
