Information Days

Info Day 2011The Kangaroo Club holds annual Information Days at the John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford.

The aim of Information Days is a chance to meet other members of the Kangaroo Club, as well as non-members who have had colorectal surgery or who are eligible for such surgery. As well as time being given for informal discussion with other attendees, there is a full programme of more formal sessions led by the medical staff from the Oxford University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust; covering subjects such as diet, surgery and question and answer sessions with the Colorectal Nursing team.

Information Day 2020 

We are sorry to say that given the need for social distancing for the foreseeable future and all the pressures on the NHS, the Kangaroo Club have regretfully decided not to hold a 2020 Information Day.

We are sad about this as our annual Information Day is usually a fun and informative event which is enjoyed by many and also gives a lovely sense of community and support.

However all is not lost as The Red Lion Group have kindly invited Kangaroo Club members to join a series of free, online webinars on pouch-related topics that they are hosting.  The next 2 events are:

Thursday 28 May – Janindra Warusavitarne, Consultant Colorectal Surgeon at St. Mark’s Hospital

Thursday 4 June – Dr Yoran Inspector, a Consultant Psychologist, speaking about the link between the gut and the mind

We are extremely grateful to The Red Lion Group for inviting us to join their webinar series.
