The UK MDS Forum was established with the remit to increase the awareness of MDS through education, setting up regional MDS registries and increasing the recruitment of MDS patients to National and International trials throughout the UK. We hope that you find the web site useful and would welcome suggestions for additions to the site.
We also strongly encourage colleagues from around the UK who are interested in the clinical and scientific aspects of MDS to join The Forum and help to make it a vibrant and inclusive organisation.
