Finance Committee Vacancies

The BSH Finance Committee has two vacancies for someone looking for a slightly different learning experience and career development. The Committee reviews the Society’s annual audit; its investments and monitors spending against budgets. We don’t require specialist knowledge, but we do look for people who will ask questions! We would particularly like to encourage a diverse range of applications: e.g. from younger members; from members who are not medics and from different ethnic backgrounds.

Please call Katy Amberley, Chief Executive, for an initial discussion on 02077132097. Please email a brief statement outlining your interest and what you could bring to the committee to:

The Aplastic Anaemia Trust

Reproduced from the AAT website

Since our establishment in the 1990s, incredible effort and commitment from our fundraising supporters and the unwavering dedication from world-leading haematology researchers at St George’s and King’s College Hospitals in London we have spent over £3m to enable ground-breaking research into aplastic anaemia and provide everyone affected with excellent emotional and clinical support.

Thanks in large part to the effort of the AAT, survival rates have vastly improved, with 8 out of 10 patients responding well to treatment and leading normal lives.

We recognise that more remains to be done to ensure that everyone affected, whether adult or child, survives the effects of the devastating disease and can lead healthy and fulfilling lives.

Today more than ever we are committed to enabling research in the areas that will lead to improved treatments for all patients affected, better understanding of aplastic anaemia and allied rare bone marrow failures, and ultimately finding a cure.

We are only able to do this thanks to the time and donations from our generous supporters. Every one of you should feel proud of your contribution to the progress we’ve been able to make and the part you played.
