Drafting of a position statement in response to the new Basic Safety Standards (Euratom 2013/59)

Investigation of models of service delivery to ensure equality of access to innovative treatments

Promotion of research and development, including support for clinical trials

Engagement with similar bodies, including CTRad, iDUG, IPEM, UKRG.

If you would like to express an interest in this working group, or have any questions, please contact the BNMS at:office@bnms.org.uk

Call for Clinical Trials

The Clinical and Translational Radiotherapy Research Working Group (CTRad) encourages submissions of proposals of clinical trials. Proposals are discussed at regular meetings and reviewed openly. The support of CTRad is extremely beneficial to obtain support funding from the CRUK. The BNMS would be pleased to discuss and support any proposals for clinical trials involving radiotherapeutics or radiodiagnostics.

Please contact the BNMS in the first instance if any advice is required at office@bnms.org.uk
