About BC-OS

Our mission is to promote research, best clinical practice and a wider understanding of the effects of cancer treatment on the cardiovascular system.

BC-OS committee 2012
The British Cardio-Oncology Society was formed in 2012 by UK cardiologists and oncologists from multiple sub-specialties working on the cardiovascular effects of cancer treatment. We work with local, national and international partners to improve patient care and welcome enquiries from cardiologists, oncologists, charities, the NHS and industry.
The society is an associated professional group of the British Cardiovascular Society (www.britishcardiovascularsociety.org) and works closely with the International CardiOncology Society of North America (ic-os.org).
