The WELLNET Symposium welcomes international discussion on NETs


June saw the WELLNET Unit hosting an international symposium on gastroenteropancreatic neuroendocrine tumours. The event was the brainchild of Professor Martyn Caplin, the current chairman of the European Centre of Excellence, to update NET health professionals on recent research and treatment developments, from around the world. Influential guest speakers joined the symposium from the US, including, Dr Matthew Kulke from Dana-Faber Cancer Institute, Dr Rodney Pommier from Oregon Health & Science University and Dr Andrew Kennedy, Physician in Chief of Radiation Oncology at the Sarah Cannon Research Institute.

The symposium was designed to mirror the current multidisciplinary model that supports the management of patients who are diagnosed with a neuroendocrine tumour. 14 speakers gave punchy, succinct  15 minute talks throughout a tri-sectional programme with consultants hosting therapy focussed sessions and concluding with panel discussions between the audience and speakers. The event attracted delegates from all areas of the UK.

The opening of the WELLNET Unit in 2014 helped The Wellington Hospital establish itself as a forerunner in the treatment of Neuroendocrine Tumours, and has been linked as a partner hospital to the European Centre of Excellence, established at the Royal Free Hospital.
