Congratulations to Professor Denis Talbot who has been awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award from the British Thoracic Oncology Group (BTOG).



Denis Talbot

 

BTOG is the multi-disciplinary group for healthcare professionals involved with thoracic malignancies throughout the UK and Ireland. The group fosters the development of research, develops educational programs for healthcare professionals and represents the needs of patients to improve the outcomes of lung cancer.

Prof Talbot was awarded the Lifetime Achievement Award for his contributions to BTOG and the field of thoracic oncology.

Talking of the award, Denis said “I am honoured and delighted to receive this prestigious award. It has been a privilege to be part of BTOG which developed from the idea of a small group of physicians twenty years ago into a pre-eminent organisation in the UK, contributing significantly to education and research; and enhancing the multi-professional care and lives of people with thoracic malignancies.”
