Welcome to the UKONS website

From the UKONS President

I attended a UKONS educational event in Derry recently and as I flew into Belfast City Airport I was reminded how easy it is to travel from England to Northern Ireland. The flight lasted under 1 hour, and for less than the price of a rail fare from London to Manchester I found myself whisked from Heathrow to central Belfast in a few hours.

The UKONS conference will be held in Belfast in November 2014 and I look forward to as many of you as possible joining us. I urge you to take the opportunity to see some of the country—the scenery is magnifi cent and the people are so welcoming and friendly and, of course, the ‘craic’ is great! Hopefully I’ll see you all in November!

Natalie Doyle

UKONS President 2012-2014
