Screening for a brighter future: NHS Oncology Virtual Conference

Cancer affects us all. Survival in England is at a record high and patients’ experience of treatment and care has never been higher, but we won’t stop there. We want every person with cancer to have the very best diagnosis, treatment and care. NHS England & Improvement

The NHS Long Term Plan set out a clear pathway for the improvement of cancer care, the aim being:

  • Enable an extra 55,000 people each year to survive for five years or more following their cancer diagnosis.
  • Three in four cancers (75%) will be diagnosed at an early stage.

This virtual Screening for a brighter future conference aims to showcase the forward-thinking and innovative initiatives that are already being implemented across the country. Here are a few examples:

Rapid Diagnostic Centres (RDCs): Rapid Diagnostic Centres (RDCs) are designed to speed up cancer diagnosis and support the NHS ambitions to achieve earlier diagnosis, with improved patient experience, for all patients with cancer symptoms or suspicious results.

The NHS Screening Programme: A £130 million national Radiotherapy Modernisation Fund has delivered the largest radiotherapy upgrade programme in 15 years. We have provided funding to replace or upgrade over 80 radiotherapy machines so that patients can have access to sustainable high-quality modern radiotherapy treatments wherever they live.

Proton Beam Therapy /(CAR-T) Therapy treatment for children: Proton beam therapy is a type of radiotherapy that uses a beam of high energy protons, which are small parts of atoms, rather than high energy x-rays (called photons) to treat specific types of cancer. CAR-T is a highly complex and innovative new treatment. CAR-T is a type of immunotherapy which involves collecting and using the patients’ own immune cells to treat their condition.

Providing personalised care and support interventions: The NHS Long Term Plan for Cancer stated that, ‘by 2021, where appropriate, every person diagnosed with cancer will have access to personalised care, including needs assessment, a care plan and health and wellbeing information and support.

Our first Screening for a brighter future: NHS Oncology Virtual Conference will provide a timely opportunity to listen learn and engage with some of the UK’s leading Oncology experts while networking with like-minded peers.

Convenzis Healthcare Event testimonials

What our clients say about us

It was great to join the Convenzis team again for the patient flow event. As always, the team were incredibly accommodating and happy to help. The quality of attendees is always of a high standard and relevant to the patient flow and to us also. We continue to have great discussions and footfall around our stand with no need to try and encourage people to come and see us. Really positive event for us and we look forward to working with Convenzis in the future.

My colleague and I presented at the NHS workforce conference 2023, 19 September. The support and guidance we received from the Convenzis team in the run up to our presentation slot was great, well timed and perfectly pitched. The event itself, again was expertly organised. The conference was well Chaired by Sean, who was very engaging. As an audience member as well as a panel member, I would definitely work with the Convenzis team again.


Covenzis delivered an excellent meeting like always - a hubbub of activity focused on future developments within NHS pathology laboratories

Working with Convenzis is a stress-free and a rewarding experience, with fantastic engagement from a highly targeted and relevant audience


I worked with Convenzis, primarily Dan, for the first time this year, putting together a bespoke online event for IBM. He has always been so responsive and accommodating. The team always remained professional and helpful – despite the many demands from our side! They were very keen for us to maximise on the investment and revisit those attendees who had not committed to follow ups.
It was an absolute pleasure doing business with Convenzis and I know there will be more opportunities next year. Looking forward to it!
