Oncology Professional Care names The Swallows Head and Neck Cancer Group as its Charity of the Year
The Swallows Head and Neck Cancer Group has been selected as Oncology Professional Care’s Charity of the Year for 2023, to help raise awareness of the charity’s aim to support all people affected by head and neck cancers.
Oncology Professional Care has pledged to make a donation of £1 for every delegate that downloads the official event app for the two-day conference and exhibition on 23-24 May 2023 at ExCeL London.
Oncology Professional Care, an award-winning conference and exhibition for the whole oncology healthcare community on 23-24 May 2023 at ExCeL London, is dedicated to unifying clinicians and managers working at every stage of the cancer care pathway to better support the patient journey. Working in partnership with The Swallows Head and Neck Cancer Group, further establishes their commitment to developing knowledge and sharing insight.
Lucy Clarke, Event Manager of Oncology Professional Care, said: “We are thrilled to support The Swallows Head and Neck Cancer Support Group in 2023. This partnership will help to further bring the oncology healthcare community together to encourage discussion, share ideas and provide invaluable updates, to enhance the patient journey for those with head and neck cancer.”
Chris Curtis, CEO of The Swallows Head and Neck Cancer Support Group, said: “Oncology Professional Care is part of our family. I’ve worked closely with the team over the past year to provide help for the oncology healthcare community, and I am absolutely delighted we have been chosen as their Charity of the Year. Oncology Professional Care supported our International Head & Neck Cancer Conference in November 2022 and it’s a pleasure to support them in return to help provide an inspiring and world-class event, and to develop the new Head and Neck Cancer Village.”
New for 2023: Head and Neck Cancer Village
Working in partnership, Oncology Professional Care and The Swallows Head and Neck Cancer Group have supported the new Head and Neck Cancer Village at the two-day event on 23-24 May 2023, ExCeL London.
A dedicated area on the exhibition floor, it will showcase the latest products, services and innovations relevant to the diagnosis, treatment and aftercare of patients with head and neck cancer. Leading companies such as Flen Health, Aspire Phamra, Oralieve, THOR Laser and Oraldent have already committed to support this area. The London Dental School will be carrying out oral cancer screening using the OralID - a blue light to help identify oral cancer, pre-cancer and other abnormal lesions at an earlier stage. This 60 second procedure will be available to all delegates and the results will be presented by Chris Curtis on day two at Oncology Professional Care.
Chris Curtis, CEO of The Swallows Head and Neck Cancer Group, said: “We are excited to support this new initiative. I presented at last year’s Oncology Professional Care and was so impressed with the wide range of healthcare professionals who were so engaged and eager to learn.”
The Swallows Head and Neck Cancer Group is a nationwide cancer charity formed by like-minded cancer patients, designed to provide help to patients with head and neck cancers and their caregivers. See more information on the website.
Oncology Professional Care is taking place on 23-24 May 2023 at ExCeL London. It is a two-day CPD certified conference and exhibition and free to attend for healthcare professionals and individuals working in the field of oncology in non-commercial roles. Registration is open online.
