The sharing of knowledge and understanding of bladder health conditions

Bladder Health UK’s second annual conference took place in February this year in Birmingham! We were delighted to welcome 130 delegates many of whom had attended our ‘Breaking Boundaries’ conference last year and were keen to join us again!

The programme on treating benign bladder illness was varied with the aim once again to ensure that everyone there learned something they didn’t know before.

At the heart of everything we do as a charity is the lived patient experience and with this in mind, we were delighted to welcome two patient speakers this year!

Comments and feedback:

"We had a really positive experience, lots of conversations and interest. It felt busier than last year and there seemed to be more people towards the end of the day, which was great to see. I very honestly don’t have a negative to give you, was very well run from start to finish and everyone at BHUK and yourself especially, deserves a lot of praise for the event. The venue is great in terms of there being parking and the food was fantastic. I’m looking forward to booking for next year!"

“What a fantastic opportunity to engage with healthcare professionals from around the country who are passionate about helping their patients with bladder symptoms – Congratulations BHUK for putting on a great educational conference “
