1) Welcome from Kirsty Crozier, Clinical Nurse Specialist
2) Presentation and Q&A session with Catriona from the Oxford Blood Group, a patient engagement group for those with experience of any blood condition, either directly as a patient or as someone close to them.
The Oxford Blood Group aims to facilitate open discussion between patients, researchers and clinicians on priorities for medical research. It launched in May 2018 with the screening of a film called "People are Messy", which explored the experience of two young men with a rare inherited anaemia, and their efforts to contribute to clinical research.
