General Election 2017

Making cancer a priority ahead of the election

What was the campaign about?

Ahead of the election we campaigned to make sure cancer remains a priority for the new government so that we achieve our ambition of 3 in 4 patients surviving cancer by 2034.

To improve outcomes for cancer patients, the Government must:

  1. Reduce the burden on the NHS by tackling the 2 biggest preventable causes of ill health – tobacco and obesity
  2. Make sure we have enough staff to carry out cancer tests to help diagnose people earlier
  3. Make sure research is a top priority in Brexit negotiations

If you want to help us make sure cancer remains high on the political agenda over the next 5 years, join us as a campaigner.
