NET Patient Day 2021

Same as last year, it’s a virtual event again this year
Date set for Nov 13th, 10 Am to 1 PM

Increased time for Q&A – talks for 1 hour followed by 2 hours for Q&A

This is an information day for Irish NET patients.
For safety reasons we have decided to again hold this year’s patient day as a virtual event. The event will be very informative and helpful for both new and existing NET patients.

Because this is a virtual event, you need to register to attend and you will receive a link to click on to attend the event, via email, AFTER you register.

NOTE: You will be asked if you are a HCP, (Health Care Professional), please select No, as this is for the Speakers.
Here is the link to register:

The event will be held using Zoom (which hopefully many of you are used to after the last 20 months!) but you will not be visible to anyone.
Just the host and presenters will be visible on screen. You will be able to connect on a computer, tablet or smartphone but we suggest using a computer if possible to easier read any slides being presented.

The event will finish with a Question & Answer session as always.
This is a wonderful opportunity to ask any questions you may have about your disease, your treatments, your symptoms or any aspect of your care.

All of the NET clinicians in Ireland are making themselves available for this Q&A.
To help ensure your question is asked on the day, we ask you to submit it in advance by email to [email protected]
