Our team of specialist asbestos disease solicitors are sponsoring Mesothelioma UK’s annual Patient and Carer Day this Friday (1 October 2021).
This year, the event will be a virtual day of learning, sharing experiences and coming together to learn from healthcare professionals and mesothelioma patients and their carers.
It will be an opportunity for everyone involved in the care and support of people with the asbestos-related cancer to discuss their experiences and meet others who are in a similar position.
Attendees will learn about the latest on mesothelioma clinical trials, treatments and research from clinical experts and hear personal stories from patients.
We are looking forward to a distinguished line up of speakers including:
- Ivan Cartwright, Area Coroner Leicester City and South Leicestershire – providing an overview of the Coroner’s Inquest
- Hannah Dye from Breathe Arts Health Research – on breathing and singing for lung health
- Barbara Murray Palliative Care Doctor, St Ann’s’ Hospice Manchester – discussing how to manage breathlessness
- Angela Tod, Professor of Older People and Care, and Dr Clare Gardiner, Senior Research Fellow, The University of Sheffield – providing a full update on the latest findings from the Mesothelioma UK Research Centre
There will be virtual lunch breakout rooms specialising in four areas related to mesothelioma and three question and answer panel sessions with the keynote speakers.
Speaking ahead of the event, specialist asbestos disease solicitor and Director of Novum Law, Andrew Stinchcombe, said:
“It is an honour to be a sponsor of the 2021 Mesothelioma UK Virtual Patient and Carer Day. It is always an informative, interesting, and inspiring event, and extremely moving to hear from mesothelioma patients and their families.
“At Novum Law we are passionate about helping, supporting and providing expert legal advice to mesothelioma patients and their families as they struggle with the daily challenges of this difficult and debilitating disease.”
