National Sarcoma Forum

We are delighted to announce that we have recently partnered with the National Sarcoma Forum to offer a dedicated strand of the BSG for sarcoma nurses and AHPs.  This means that BSG will provide the administrative support needed to run the NSF, and we will work strategically with them to support sarcoma professionals.  It also means that as a supported organisation, all NSF members need to be a member of BSG in the first instance.
