Maldron Hotel, Tallaght, Dublin

The 2016 Annual NET Patient Day was another success with a very large attendance by NET patients, many accompanied by their family and friends, who travelled from all around the country and even from abroad to participate. Again, as always, there was a mixture of both newly diagnosed patients and long-term patients. The day was a huge success and continues to see our Annual NET Patient Day grow year on year.

As a small group of patients with a rare disease, we benefit greatly from the dedication and commitment of our health carers. This year we held the event in the Maldron Hotel in Tallaght. This was a great venue and was able to cope with the very large crowd that attended and provided a very nice lunch following the event.

Our thanks go to the medical specialists from around Ireland who attended the event and especially to Prof Per Hellman from Uppsala University Hospital in Sweden who travelled especially to attend our event. 

Here are some photos from the day (85 photos in all):

Here are the opening talks and presentations:

Our own Tommie Gorman gave a very interesting talk on how the system is working from a patient’s perspective:

We had an excellent presentation on Nutrition and NETs by Ms Deirdre Burke, Senior Dietitian from St Vincents University Hospital:

We then had a very interactive Q&A session between the panel and the audience. We have broken down this into individual questions below:

We finished with some very positive comments by patients and a wrap-up of the event:
