Supporting the

Neuroendocrine Cancer Community

Patient Education Events

Events which aim to support and educate patients and supporters about all aspects of Neuroendocrine Cancer.

NCUK run a programme of events which aim to support and educate patients and their supporters about all aspects of Neuroendocrine Cancer. Our free to attend, interactive events cover aspects of cancer diagnosis, treatments, research and care. Events are delivered by a multidisciplinary team of experts through interactive workshops, panel discussions and clinical lectures. As an attendee you will have the opportunity to network with others in a similar situation to you and meet the presenters.

In 2017 we held our first NET Retreat. The NET Retreat offered workshops and sessions which aimed to help anyone affected by a Neuroendocrine Cancer, to take a break from the stresses and habits of daily life in order to focus on their physical, mental and spiritual wellbeing.
