What is the SABR Consortium?
The Consortium has been around for over a decade now, having first being established to bring SABR to UK radiotherapy centres in a safe and managed way. We have worked with commissioners to champion the position of SABR in the UK and were instrumental in setting up the NHS England SABR Commissioning through Evaluation (CtE) programme.
Being a truly multi-disciplinary group of clinicians, scientists and radiographers who act as an expert consensus group, we produce contemporary guidance for the UK that offers advice on all aspects of planning and delivering high quality SABR link to guidance.
We run a yearly conference in November that has gone from strength to strength over the last decade. In 2019 we attracted over 225 delegates and 16 commercial exhibitors and had some very high profile international speakers link to 2019 programme. With the uncertainty existing over the COVID-19 pandemic, 2020 will see us move to a virtual meeting for the first time that will that will focus on delivering on SABR education using a series of high-profile speakers as well as the opportunity to present proffered papers and e-posters.
Our focus in the coming months is to continue working collaboratively with NHS England to help facilitate safe and timely expansion of SABR beyond CtE via the SABR Expansion Programme.
