Registration for this year's largest one-day cancer conference in the UK is now open.
Britain Against Cancer is the biggest annual cancer conference of its kind in the UK. Celebrating 20 years of the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer, the conference brings together organisations and individuals from across the cancer community – this includes NHS professionals, patients, carers, third sector professionals, policy experts and politicians – to discuss and debate the most pressing issues in cancer policy.
This year’s conference, taking place on Tuesday 4 December 2018 in Westminster’s Methodist Central Hall, will see us look back on the progress that has been made to the cancer community. We will also be looking ahead at the future of cancer care in the UK and a discussion on the long-term funding of the NHS.
The conference will also be an exciting chance to meet and welcome APPGC’s new Chair, Nic Dakin MP. He will be given the opportunity to address the cancer sector, reflect on where we have come from, the future of cancer services and what still needs to be done to improve outcomes for patients.
Exhibiting at Britain Against Cancer offers you the opportunity to engage with delegates, showcase your work and be a visible presence within the health sector. It is a distinctive chance to meet new people and inform others about how your organisation is contributing to improving the lives of people affected by cancer.
Britain Against Cancer is a unique opportunity to support and be associated with an established and highly reputable conference, which consistently sets the agenda for the future of cancer care.
