As we navigate through the uncertainty of COVID-19, we are all facing the biggest challenge of our professional lives in the response we are mounting to support patients within and outside of our speciality.

From all of us at BAUN, we are here to support YOU. Don't forget to check the COVID-19 resource hub, connect, support and share your experiences in the closed BAUN Facebook page and don't forget my email inbox is always open.

We understand you are all very busy during this time; however, my fellow trustees and I would like to give you something to look forward to and bring you and your teams back together for an educational celebration. We are working very hard behind the scenes to bring you yet another fantastic programme for our silver jubilee conference and we would like you to know that from today, registration is open.

I hope by November we have a degree of free movement, your organisations are recognising your value and as part of this encourage you to take some leave to join up with your urological colleagues around the country to celebrate. Industry partners can also look at reducing the complexity of applying for grants to sponsor your attendance. As BAUN President, I have written to all our industry colleagues asking them to look at the process of supporting your attendance to conference as a means of working in collaboration with BAUN, supporting the ‘heroic & angelic’ sentiments with something tangible for Urological Nursing.

See conference details over the conference pages on our website.

Over the years, thanks to the enthusiasm of its members and the hard work of those who have served on the Board of Trustees, BAUN has developed and grown into the vibrant organisation it is today.

In 2020, BAUN is proud to celebrate its 25th anniversary. Current Trustees would like to thank all who have gone before to make the association as strong as it is today. We will celebrate our past and look to the future positively in this special year. The silver jubilee conference will be held on 15 -17 November 2020 at the EICC in Edinburgh. The theme is “Harnessing Courage - leading urological nursing into the future.”
