Britain Against Cancer 2013
A big thank you to all delegates, sponsors, speakers and exhibitors who helped make Britain Against Cancer such a successful event.
It was the largest conference to date, providing an important platform for people with an interest in cancer to discuss the new NHS and what it should do to prioritise cancer services and outcomes. If you couldn’t make it to the conference, you can find out what was said in our summaries of all sessions.
At Britain Against Cancer 2013, the APPGC launched its latest report, Cancer across the Domains. The report, as the result of a year-long programme of research and consultation, maps out the priorities for NHS England across the entire cancer journey.
