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.
The new NHS – a better outcome for cancer patients? was the theme for the 14th annual Britain Against Cancer conference, held on 11th December 2012 at Central Hall, Westminster. Updates from the conference sessions are available here.
