Every year we host our National Conference for anyone affected by lymphoma.  It’s a chance for people to come together and share questions, concerns and stories about living with and beyond the condition.  This year - on 11 May in London - there is also a focus on family members; exploring how a diagnosis can affect loved ones too. Our expert panel of speakers give inspiring, uplifting and often interactive presentations about the topics that we know matter to you. 

But don’t take our word for it!  We spoke to previous attendees Mark, Sue and Clare, each of whom is at a different stage in their lymphoma journey, but all of whom are returning to our National Conference again this year. Visit our news section to find out why they keep coming back… 


Still not convinced? Here are 5 reasons why we think you should join us: 

1. You’ll have a valuable opportunity to meet and share experiences with other people who have experienced lymphoma.

2. Nurse-led sessions will break down barriers by linking you directly with lymphoma nurses and peers for face-to-face support.

3. Haematologists and oncologists will host parallel sessions, specifically on Hodgkin, low-grade, and high-grade lymphomas, giving you a perfect chance to ask your questions!

4. We’ll focus on emotional wellbeing for everyone – including family, friends and carers, because we all need to look after ourselves.

5. You’ll leave our lifestyle sessions feeling empowered to live well, eat well and move more!


 
The speakers at Lymphoma Action’s National Conference are always fascinating – and it’s such a lovely feeling to walk into a room where hundreds of people just ‘get it’.  They understand the very specific challenges that come with a lymphoma diagnosis

I can walk into a room where literally hundreds of people know exactly what I mean. It’s uplifting, inspiring – and there’s a real sense of camaraderie, because although attendees might have different types of lymphoma, they can all understand the mental challenges that certain aspects of the condition bring

Getting to County Hall

County Hall is situated on the Southbank of the Thames, next to the London Eye with views over The Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. You can take a virtual tour of County Hall online.

Waterloo and Westminster stations are the closest underground stations - both a pleasant 5 minute walk away. You can download our map and directions to find County Hall by tube, bus, river or bike.

The entrance you'll need is on Belvedere Road – please note this IS NOT on the river side of the building. Belvedere Road runs parallel to the river at the rear of the building. The door you'll need to the venue is situated in the middle of the building, half way down Belvedere Road opposite Forum Magnum Square.


 
One of the challenges posed by lymphoma is that early symptoms can be vague and easily confused with other conditions. Attending the Lymphoma Action conference and hearing about advances gives you hope for the future; that outcomes will improve for people living with lymphoma
