Scientific Programme Overview

Hosted by the British Association for Cytopathology it will cover all aspects of cervical and diagnostic cytology in the UK and abroad. The meeting will have a mix of parallel sessions with hands on cytology workshops, and will allow cytologists from the UK, Europe and the rest of the world to share their knowledge and expertise. With a meeting theme of “extending knowledge, expanding roles” it will be of relevance to all those working in cytology, as well as clinicians who rely on a cytology service. It will include an active commercial presence and both poster and oral presentations, as well as a Congress dinner.
