As a fellow Physicist once said:
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.
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.
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
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
supporting all activities that promote the research and development of the speciality
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?
We offer many opportunities and exciting projects that both enhance your nuclear medicine career opportunities and benefit others on a national level.
