Why you should get involved?

As a fellow Physicist once said:

One never notices what has been done EDIT 

There is still much to be done in our field. 

Yet, reflecting on past accomplishments can often inspire us to do more.

The BNMS therefore wish to share with you some of the conditions widely experienced today by patients, professionals and the like; that have been achieved through just a small society founded some 49 years ago. 

Much of this work happens behind the scenes through BNMS Volunteer members, Officers and members of Council.

Working to improve standards of patient care through audits and surveys; supporting the UK nuclear medicine workforce by developing training and standards, promoting a safe working environment.

So what are we doing right now?

WE ARE OVERSEEING

the collection of important data to preserve funding for Nuclear Medicine Departments in the UK. To provide a solid platform for the continued professional development of NM medical professionals

WE PROVIDE

scientific meetings throughout the year using leading contributors in Nuclear Medicine to formulate cutting edge programmes that both educate and stimulate students, scientists and practitioners of the latest therapies, techniques and equipment in Nuclear Medicine 

WE ARE STANDING UP

to the world shortage of radioisotopes that are essential in conducting scans that detect critical conditions in patients around the world

WE AUDIT AND SET THE STANDARDS 

for nuclear medicine procedures and working conditions for the safe and effective practice for both patients and practitioners in the UK

WE ARE THE RESPONSE

to education providers and careers resources for the next generation of young and aspiring academics. Guiding and encouraging the pursuit of the rewarding and satisfying career in Nuclear Medicine

AND FINALLY,

WE ARE THE ONLY INDEPENDENT FORUM IN THE UK DEDICATED TO NUCLEAR MEDICINE 

supporting all activities that promote the research and development of the speciality 

BNMS here for YOU cropped

 

 

If the BNMS did not exist, both the UK and beyond would face the following dilemmas:

No Clinical Practice Guidelines reflecting UK practice and standards to prevent incidents and adverse reactions to nuclear medicine procedures

No dedicated nuclear medicine forum to present and propagate research and developments related to nuclear medicine, with little prospect of progression in diagnosis of new therapies

No dedicated training meetings reducing the training opportunities to educate future generations of the specialised field

Less secure future of the profession without supported plans to retain UK departments within the NHS

No campaigns or proposals to secure the UK supply in the presence of world shortage of radioisotopes that are vital to conduct nuclear medicine scans essential for detection and           diagnosis of medical condtions

Without the dynamic commitment and enthusiasm of those who formed the small group in 1966 Nuclear Medicine would not have the same identity in the medical world as it stands today. 

With your help, we can continue to represent the voice of nuclear medicine

Our members come from all over the world to offer their skills, knowledge, experience and energy to contribute to the BNMS voice.

Without our members we cannot continue to shape and represent this important field of medicine.

 

Could you get involved and join us in this ongoing operation?
