Leading the talk, we are delighted to be able to welcome back Professor Christopher Fegan who last spoke for us in Cardiff at the start of 2020 - just before the Covid pandemic closed everything down.

Joining him will be Dr David Allsup , Senior Lecturer in Haematology who has an Honorary NHS appointment with Hull and East Yorkshire Hospitals NHS Trust. He is the local lead for chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL)), in which he has a longstanding research interest.

And we are especially pleased to have Haematology Specialist Nurse Julia Evans , from the Oxford Cancer and Haematology Centre, Churchill Hospital, who works with early stage patients all of whom are pre-treatment. She will be sharing insight into how the ‘OxCom’ service, which is a collaboration with GPs in Oxfordshire to monitor all Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL)/MBL patients, was developed.

The theme of "Living well with Chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) " enables us to talk about the experiences patients have at diagnosis; what real value are prognostic markers; available therapies and their potential toxicities - of course, Covid impacts on many of these areas.
