Campaign with us - Help secure Safe Spaces for Cancer Services

campaign with us

Cancer doesn’t stop because of a pandemic, neither can the safe delivery of cancer services. Thousands are missing out on tests and treatment. It’s the UK and devolved governments’ responsibility to keep cancer services operating safely during this time. Write to your politicians right now to ensure there are COVID-protected safe spaces for cancer services.

Before COVID-19 there were around 367,000 new cases of cancer in the UK each year, and sadly, around 153,000 deaths. Early diagnosis followed by swift access to the most effective treatment remains as important as it’s ever been for cancer survival. If we fail to act, we’re in danger of moving from one health care crisis (COVID-19), to another (a backlog in late cancer diagnosis).

It’s the UK and devolved governments’ responsibility to keep cancer services operating safely during this time,. Write to your politicians right now to ensure there are COVID-protected safe spaces for cancer services.
