Event description


OcuMel UK's Ocular Melanoma Conference

Hilton St Annes Manor, London Road, Bracknell, RG40 1ST

OcuMel UK is delighted to organise a conference bringing patients and caregivers the latest information on ocular melanoma.


We understand that being diagnosed with Ocular Melanoma can leave patients facing many challenges. There is often a lack of support available and many hospitals do not have the knowledge or expertise to correctly advise on surveillance, treatments and sources of up-to-date

On Friday 5th and Saturday 6th July, we shall address these issues and look at aspects of ocular melanoma and address many of the questions people affected by ocular melanoma can have.

People attending on Sunday 7th July will either be interested in our mindfulness track or be part of our Patient & Community Advisory Board. More details on this to follow.

Attendees Can Expect

  • Specialist Speakers: providing information at both introductory and a more advanced level.
  • Socialising & Networking opportunities: We know that many of you will be looking forward to meeting up with others in similar situations over morning/ afternoon breaks, lunch and dinner.

The full conference programme will be continuously updated and can be found here.
