CLLSA Members Meetings - Regional Meetings and Regional News.
We host three to four regional meetings for members throughout the UK annually. There is no charge to attend a CLLSA meeting or to register as a member, But you must first register as a member before applying for meeting places . This can be done here from the website or if already a member you will also receive emailed invitations ahead of meetings and you can book your meeting places directly with membership by email at email@example.com if you prefer.
We host meetings at comfortable and accessible locations with good communications and provide complimentary lunch and refreshments. Meetings are always supported by members from partner charities to ensure the latest supportive literature is available.
Regular meetings and conferences of members are a vitally important opportunity for us to come together, meet new friends , share experiences , lessons, and knowledge of resources available to people affected by CLL.
CLLSA meetings provide expert talks from leading medical staff in the field of CLL healthcare and research to ensure members are aware of the latest CLL treatments and clinical trials available . The treatment of CLL is fast changing and potentially undergoing a paradigm shift with step changes in treatment and care as new drugs come into clinical trial and gain regulatory aproval for NHS use.
Meetings are one of the best ways to keep abreast of this. hearing first hand from the clinical community of what is available and what is likely to come available and how this may effect UK patients and their families.
Meeting others who can relate can be a very rewarding and uplifting experience, at meetings we are all in the same boat and can enjoy some open time together.
Demand for meeting places is high and judging by the number of members who t return to attend meetings at different locations and feedback we receive following meetings we know how much our members value this experience.
2014 saw the trustees broaden the geographical reach of the association and hold our first Scotland meeting, we are working to a calandar to provide events in England, Wales and Scotland.
