November was a hectic month for clinician events, with conferences in London, Manchester & Liverpool.

Kicking off, the charity’s CEO Neil McClements headed to the NICE conference in Manchester. Earlier this year, NICE decided to cancel the ongoing clinical guideline for genetic haemochromatosis. So, this was a chance to relay our community’s disappointment and share our plans for the charity’s own guidelines, to be published early next year.

Next up, Victoria our information and advisory nurse travelled to the Royal College of Nursing in London, to present to the South West London regional group on GH care pathways. Over 100 delegates were present and several expressed interest in further training and resources once they returned home.

And finally, the team travelled to Liverpool to exhibit at Nursing Live, attended by 6,000 nurses and allied healthcare professionals. This was undoubtedly the highlight of the events – delegates swarmed our stand for 2 days. We met many nurses with GH and countless others who care for people with the condition. We were especially pleased to be asked by several nursing colleges to present to their students next year. Our recently re-accredited RCN eLearning Module and Venesection Best Practice Guidance were especially well received.

Our thanks to volunteers Neil Harper, Alex Allcoat and Jade Cassidy who helped staff the stand – with so many interested delegates, we couldn’t have done it without you!
