Dear Friends and Colleagues,
It is my privilege as President of the BSH to invite you to the 55th Annual Scientific Meeting. The meeting will be held in Edinburgh the inspiring capital of Scotland, where centuries of history meet a vibrant, cosmopolitan city in an unforgettable setting.
The Annual Scientific Meeting remains a critical core component of our Society. Today the work of the Society is more relevant than ever - both in the laboratory and clinical setting. Our annual meeting is an important gathering of our haematology community and an outstanding opportunity to network with multidisciplinary colleagues. The meeting provides us with guidance on changing clinical and laboratory practice and a comprehensive update on advances in haematology. Improving outcomes is the theme that I have chosen for this year’s meeting. We improve outcomes for our patients through expert application of advances in diagnostics and therapeutics. The vision of our Society is to transform patient care through excellence in haematology. To be excellent we must be expert and the annual meeting is one of the ways our Society helps us to maintain our expertise.
I do hope that many of you will be able to come to Edinburgh to benefit professionally, to engage as an active member of our Society and to meet up with new and old friends.
Dr Trevor Baglin
