Reports and events
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer plays an active role, in and outside of Parliament, in raising issues and lobbying on areas that affect cancer policy. The Group's activities culminate at the end of every year with our landmark conference, Britain Against Cancer.
On Thursday 13 February 2014, APPGC Chair John Baron MP hosted a debate on the recommendations in the APPG’s latest report, Cancer across the Domains. The report looks at the new structure of the NHS and identifies 18 priorities for cancer, which the APPGC is now campaigning for NHS England to implement. Find out what was said during the debate.
