The theme for the two days was sharing excellence in cancer care and we did that and more.

Some of the highlights included:

  • Keynote and workshop sessions looking at the role of the cancer team in supporting people living with the impact of cancer, what we're doing to support cancer prevention and early diagnosis and our role in supporting the Practice Nurse Community
  • Presentations from the three Macmillan Fellows about what they've been up to since winning their fellowship and 44 poster presentations from Macmillan professionals
  • The third excellence awards ceremony hosted by Olympic champion swimmer Mark Foster
  • The launch of the Alumni programme and what past post holders have told us * A look at the Macmillan professionals learning and development opportunities for 2015.

Next year's Professionals event and excellence awards will take place on the 4th - 6th of November 2015, it promises to be even bigger and better than this year, so save the date.
