The BNMS is much more than a group of professionals. View our video to find out who we are and what we do
Established in 1966 as the Nuclear Medicine Society, its membership includes the clinicians dealing with the medical speciality, clinical scientists, radiopharmacists, other scientists, nuclear medicine technologists and nurses.
BNMS Volunteer members, Officers and members of Council have represented the UK nuclear medicine community in a variety of significant projects and consultations through 2014. They have worked to improve standards of patient care through audits and surveys; supported the UK nuclear medicine workforce by developing training and standards and at the same time ensuring a safe working environment. The BNMS continues to work with national and international organisations to maintain the voice and profile of nuclear medicine.
Much of this work happens behind the scenes and is not always obvious to the membership. To try and correct this we have prepared an outline of some of the different activities the BNMS have been involved in during 2014:
