Patient forums

ALK Positive UK's twice-yearly forums take place across the country and all members are invited. These forums provide an opportunity for those diagnosed with ALK+ lung cancer and their families to get together and find out more about their diagnosis and how our charity can support them, as well as receiving talks and presentations from medical professionals and experts in the field.

We are very excited to announce plans for a fully-funded weekend conference starting on Friday 23 September 2022. 

The conference will start on Friday evening and end after lunch on Sunday, and is funded by educational grants from two pharmaceutical companies. The conference is residential and members can come with one companion sharing a double room. The cost is just a £10 per person registration fee. Travel expenses will be reimbursed. We will have a full programme of speakers, but there will also be ample time for members to meet socially and exchange experiences.  

This will be our first face-to-face meeting for over two years and we are planning for a big attendance. There has been a huge increase in membership over the past two years and we hope that many new members as well as our old members will attend. We hope that most members can be residential for the full weekend but day delegates and attendance for one night can be arranged.
