A few comments from our members

"Over the many years that I have belonged I have found it invaluable both in enabling me to make contact with others working in the field and, through its meetings, keeping me updated on scientific developments"
"I had a great experience. I love the way the communications are done. Publications, magazines for CPD and also the opportunities given to develop your own career"
"I have been a member of BNMS for roughly 35 years and feel that its meetings and publications were central to my learning and understanding of Nuclear Medicine"
"I have always enjoyed the annual meetings (Spring and Autumn). The content of both was always much more relevant to day to day experience than the EANM. The newsletter highlight relevant new legislation/documents and issues. The imaging guidelines and access to the journal have been invaluable. Getting more staff involved is a constant battle"
"I was head of NM Physics at a large teaching hospital for 25+ years and I always found the BNMS to be authoratative and well-respected. I found the publications and, latterly, the website to be very useful and provided much valuable information. Long may the BNMS thrive!"
"Membership of BNMS has been an essential part of my 35 year career in Nuclear Medicine"
