BSH Annual Scientific Meeting 2017

Brighton – Monday 27 – Wednesday 29 March 2017


If you can only attend one event in 2017 make it our ASM. It promises to cater to all Haematology specialists with an excellent scientific and educational programme in place covering the latest research and best practice.  

Registrations are now open

The deadline for submitting Abstracts has now passed.


We received excellent feedback from the 2016 ASM, and this year we have taken everything you loved last year and added more. The three main days will be packed with more than 36 sessions and will open with a joint BSH/ASH session and close with a summary of key information from the meeting in the take-home messages. In between will be 27 educational sessions, 3 plenary lectures and 12 satellite symposia as well as free communication and 'meet the expert' sessions. View the programme.

The education sessions will cover the whole range of Haematology and each will have a 'How I treat' emphasis. There will also be clinical vignettes, debates and the ever-popular morphology session. In addition, the 'Pitfalls' meeting on the Sunday, which has always provided a different and very stimulating programme, is now bookable as part of the main registration to make attendance easier. The poster session will also change so that every poster will be discussed in small groups led by experts in the field and the session will be fuelled by drinks and nibbles.

The plenary lectures will be:

  • Prof Nigel Mackman - 'Role of tissue factor in haemostasis and thrombosis'
  • Prof Anas Younes - 'The changing landscape of Hodgkin Lymphoma therapy'
  • Prof Judith Marsh - ‘How I treat Aplastic Anaemia'

The social program has been completely revamped to ensure you get time to network with your UK and international colleagues over the three days. Networking will kick start at the ‘Young Haematologists Evening’ on Sunday.  We can’t visit Brighton without heading out on the Pier so on Monday we have organise a fun filled event – the ticket price of only £30 will include an informal dinner, drinks and even fairground rides! To top off the drinks and nibbles on the Tuesday everyone will head to the restaurant for a light buffet and canapés.


BSH Annual Pitfalls Meeting

Now in its ninth year, this popular education day will focus on 'Pitfalls in Managing Cancer'.

The event is chiefly aimed at trainees but all are welcome to attend.

Book your tickets through our Conference website.



Here’s what people had to say about the 2016 meeting:

'Really excellent and diverse content embracing world health, non-malignant and malignant with equal vigor. High quality speakers and healthy debate. A really good meeting.'

'The level of the scientific knowledge obtained in this event was in par with the international education standards in medicine and research.'

'There were some fantastic speakers and presentations. This was my first BSH ASM and I found the conference to be of a very high standard. The current research and comparisons to previous research within the different topics was very interesting and challenged my current thought process.'

'As a research assistant working in a cancer genetics laboratory it was refreshing to hear and learn about the clinical aspect of the fields I am interested in, as it is not something I am always exposed to in my working environment.'
