The British Society for Haematology (BSH) Lymphoma Special Interest Group (SIG) primarily has an educational role. The educational events cover both the clinical aspects of lymphoma diagnosis and management as well as basic scientific and translational science. Lymphoma research will remain the remit of the lymphoma NCRI Lymphoma Clinical Studies Group.

The group organises one educational event every year in autumn, in different geographical locations, and two business meetings per year. A second educational meeting might be held during the ASM, subject to the approval of the BSH Programme Committee.

The SIG committee has 11 elected representatives, members of the BSH, with one reserved position for each of the devolved nations. There are also co-opted members representing specialist nursing, imaging, histopathology and members in training. There are therefore be a total of 15 committee members. It is hoped that there will be even geographical representation but the elected members are all elected on the basis of votes cast without reference to their geographic location except for the reserved positions mentioned above. The Chair is chosen from within the Committee, once elected, during the first business meeting.

Members serve a three year term or less if agreed to allow a staggered rotation.

The BSH Lymphoma SIG offers advice and professional opinion to and through the External Affairs Committee when requested to do so.

Chair - Dr Kate Cwynarski
