Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity celebrates twenty-five years of Roald Dahl specialist children's nurses at their annual conference.

On Friday 18th November, Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity hosted their annual Roald Dahl Nurses Conference at Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool. 

It was a magical day and staff at the charity were delighted to be joined by marvellous guests including Dr Ann McMahon from the Royal College of Nursing, Marvellous Nurse Inventing Room Project team coordinators and behaviourist Jez Rose. Roald Dahl's doctor Professor Tom Solomon, Dr Larissa Kerecuk, Dr Gayle McKerracher and Dr Richard Appleton also attended the conference and delivered some inspiring talks. 

Roald Dahl specialist children's nurses attended the conference from across the country and were able to meet other healthcare professionals and share best practice. 

The conference included specialism hubs which enabled Roald Dahl nurses to have discussions specific to their focus areas, including epilepsy, haematology and neurology. Liccy Dahl, Roald Dahl's widow joined the marvellous conference and enjoyed the day with all who attended.

Anne Sweeney, the charity's first Roald Dahl nurse and the UK's first paediatric epilepsy specialist nurse was also honoured for the care she has provided to children and families affected by epilepsy. Sophie Dziwinski, Senior Programmes Manager at the charity said, "We were delighted to celebrate Anne's twenty-five years as a Roald Dahl Nurse in Liverpool where it all began. Our annual conference is a wonderful way to bring all our Roald Dahl Nurses together and enhance collaboration opportunities."

Roald Dahl's Marvellous Children's Charity wishes to thank all those involved in making this year's conference so very marvellous.
