Introduction to dietetic management in Pancreatic Disease

Postponement of this event

After careful reflection, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone this event following the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

While those due to join us will share our disappointment in the delay, the wellbeing of our community must always be our first priority. With all of our attendees being health professionals, who play a vital role in delivering the care people affected by pancreatic cancer rely upon, it would not be right to risk adding more pressure to colleagues across the NHS at this challenging time.

We look forward to bringing everyone together at a later date.
