2013 EBMT (UK) NAP Committee Elections

Posted on: 24 Apr 2013

It is with regret that the EBMT (UK) NAP Committee announce the resignation of both their Chair, Louise McNamara, and their Vice-Chair, Tuula Rintala, as of the June Conference and AGM on 14th June 2013 in Leeds.  The decision is due to their changing roles as neither Louise or Tuula are currently working directly as nurses within the field of stem cell transplantation.

This is a wonderful opportunity for the Committee to move forward with fresh leadership and we hope that there is real interest from within the EBMT (UK) NAP Group to join.  We are therefore calling for nominations for a new Chair and Vice-Chair to take post as of June 2013. All nominations should be forwarded to our Secretary Lisa Hammond, lisa.hammond@rbch.nhs.uk.
