Bristol Health Partners

A nature and wellbeing summit, hosted in Bristol as part of the city's year as European Green Capital, is bringing together leading UK and European practitioners, researchers and decision-makers to discuss the value of nature in our society and nature-based solutions for health and wellbeing. SHINE HIT director Marcus Grant will be giving a keynote address.

The Avon Primary Care Research Collaborative (APCRC) invite you to a Patient and Public Involvement Seminar on Thursday 19 March, 12.00-13.30 at South Plaza, Bristol.

 

Brain tumour tissue is removed everyday by surgeons but very few patients know they can donate brain tumour tissue to research. A new campaign launched today at the University of Bristol seeks to raise awareness for patients and healthcare professionals about donating brain tumour tissue and helping researchers find a cure for this disease.
