About Britain Against Cancer 2013
The Secretary of State for Health Jeremy Hunt MP and Shadow Secretary of State Andy Burnham MP will be addressing BAC once again. The conference is a fantastic opportunity to network with the cancer community as well as hear from and question some of the key decision makers in Government and the NHS.
The theme of this year’s conference will focus on the All Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer’s (APPGC) Cancer Across the Domains project looking at NHS England, the new body responsible for NHS services. We have been speaking to experts and the cancer community to develop a set of cancer priorities for NHS England. The conference will see the launch of the report and recommendations.
