Helen, who applied to Rosemere Cancer Foundation for funding, said: “Members of the ACPGBI are all specialists in bowel disease, including bowel cancer.
“Attending the AGM at Edinburgh International Conference Centre was an opportunity to update our knowledge, particularly with recent advances in bowel cancer management and treatment, and share the best practice strategies with colleagues from the UK.
“We are very grateful to Rosemere Cancer Foundation and its supporters for helping us be there.”
