2020, what a year so far….

A lot has happened this year, with changes to the committee membership roles and not forgetting the ongoing Covid19 pandemic!

Whilst the BAHNON team are committed to providing support and up-to-date advice to its members, this has been very challenging since the beginning of the year with most of us tied up with our primary clinical roles.

What we do know is that we hope to try and update the website further with more content over the course of the year and look to try and figure out how we can arrange our next conference safely in 2022.

As always, you can email us for any enquires or sharing of best practice. Or request to join our Facebook page for an even easier way to network and stay in touch.

Ian Salmon, BAHNON Secretary.

BAHNON 2021 conference, Manchester – postponed…

Due to current Covid19 pandemic it is with a regret that we have postponed our planned conference next year 2021, which we were due to hold in Manchester. This is extremely disappointing to us all as the conference provides not only a learning opportunity, but also a chance to network and support colleagues from all over the country. More info will follow in the coming months when the healthcare climate begins to return to a new normal. 

BAHNO fundraising challenge – August 2020

Our colleagues at BAHNO are doing a sponsored virtual run/cycle from Land’s End to John O’Groats on 1st August and they are looking for members to take part! Literally anyone can get involved, they just have to run 5K or cycle 10K in their own home / local park and get sponsors to donate at https://www.gofundme.com/f/bahno-covidsurg-cancer-fundraising

Funds raised go towards research into the long-term impact of COVID-19 on head and neck cancer patients. There will be a map on the website tracking the virtual trip across the country. 

People should register by emailing FundRaising@bahno.org.uk with their details.

Good luck!!
