The event, which starts on Monday, April 1, includes talks, speeches, the presentation of industry awards and a dinner.

Tim King, general manager at TKC, said: “The British Nuclear Medicine Society Conference is a major event in the speciality of nuclear medicine and we’re looking forward to hosting such a prestigious conference.”

Charlotte Weston, CEO of BNMC, said: “Our annual Spring meeting brings together professionals working in Nuclear Medicine and contributes to Continual Professional Development. We selected Oxford this year because it is a great city for delegates to visit and has good rail and road links. The King’s Centre is the perfect size for us enabling us to host three sessions in parallel each day. We have exclusive use of the venue with plenty of room for our commercial exhibition.

“Our annual awards dinner will be held in the medieval hall at New College Oxford. We’re really looking forward to bringing our delegates to Oxford and hope we can return in future.”

The BNMS is the only independent forum devoted to all aspects of Nuclear Medicine. Its membership includes medical specialist clinicians, clinical scientists, radiopharmacists, nuclear medicine technologists, radiographers and nurses.
