Exiting the EU: our work to ensure the best deal for cancer research and patients
We have created a central resources hub for Health Professionals which hosts all of our CRUK resources and further materials to help with managing the pandemic. We are updating the information as guidance changes. There is also a page specifically for patients on our about cancer hub.

Health and science are global. And collaboration between the UK and countries in Europe and beyond enables the discoveries that benefit patients everywhere.
So we’ll be following progress on the UK’s new relationship with the EU closely. And we’ll continue to work hard to inform negotiations and ensure cancer patients in the UK and across the EU are prioritised in talks.
As the largest independent funder of research in Europe we remain committed to collaborating across borders within Europe, and globally, to beat cancer sooner.
What people affected by cancer need from the future relationship
We’ve been working to understand what people affected by cancer need from the future UK-EU relationship, and how we can amplify their voice during negotiations. The result is a short report, based on engagement and surveying of our communities, which we’re taking directly to Government
Scientists have greater impact when they collaborate internationally.
A report funded by eight leading UK medical research funders and charities identifies some of the main ways in which UK research contributes to medical progress. It highlights the benefit this has delivered for EU science, and ultimately how this has improved the health of patients across the EU.
