Due to the General Election, the Houses of Parliament have dissolved and therefore the APPGC currently has no status. The group will be reformed following the 8th June. Please check back for further information.
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer (APPGC) was founded in 1998 to keep cancer at the top of the political agenda, and to ensure that policy-making remains patient centred.
The Group brings together MPs and Peers from across the political spectrum to debate key issues and campaign together to improve cancer services.
The APPGC holds regular meetings and campaigns on a number of vital issues including patient experience, early diagnosis, rarer cancers and living with and beyond cancer. In the last Parliament we successfully campaigned for Clinical Commissioning Groups to be held to account on improving their one year cancer survival rates.
You can read the APPGC's findings and recommendations from the recent inquiry in the report 'Progress into the England Cancer Strategy: One year on'.
The APPGC's landmark event is the annual Britain Against Cancer conference. This event is a unique opportunity to bring together everyone who has an interest in improving cancer services and outcomes in the UK. For more information about the event, including how to register, please visit our Britain Against Cancer pages.
The Secretariat to the All Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer is provided by Macmillan Cancer Support and supported by a stakeholder group of organisations including Breast Cancer Now; Cancer Research UK; Men's Health Forum; Prostate Cancer UK; use MY data; Teenage Cancer Trust; Independent Cancer Patient Voices; and Rarer Cancer's Forum.
