About this Event

WMUK’s Patient-Doctor Summit is a popular and friendly annual event that brings together the Waldenström’s Macroglobulinemia community in the UK. It’s a unique collaboration between patients and doctors, providing information and support for people with this rare and complex blood cancer.

  • Join us for a relaxed, interactive and informative day of presentations, discussions and smaller sessions. We’ve designed the day to include something for everyone, whatever your level of knowledge or stage of WM.

  • Meet others who are affected by WM and share your experiences with people who understand WM.

  • Hear experts talk about new developments in WM and take the opportunity to ask them questions throughout the day.

  • This year, we have included a special session for carers to meet each other to share experiences and get support.
