Are you a CLL patient who is unsure of why you are on a watch and wait?

A panel discussion where we will be joined by haematology experts who will be discussing the watch and wait process, answering live questions from the audience.

12 April 2022

Did you know that 13,000 chronic lymphocytic leukaemia (CLL) patients are on active monitoring, also known as ‘Watch and Wait’ in the UK? We understand being placed on watch and wait can be a very confusing and upsetting time.

In order to help you understand watch and wait, and how to live well whilst on it, join our webinar on 12th April, where we will be joined by specialist speakers to answer the questions you may have.

We will be joined by: 

  • Professor Chris Fegan – Emeritus Professor Cardiff School of Medicine and Consultant Haematologist University Hospital of Wales.
  • Charlotte Bloodworth – Advanced Nurse Practitioner University Hospital of Wales
  • Bryony Tyrell – Lymphoid Clinical Nurse Specialist University Hospital Southampton NHS Foundation Trust
  • CLL patient with long term active monitoring experience
  • CLL patient who is new to active monitoring
