About this opportunity

Public Health England’s Cancer Data Conference is the UK’s foremost cancer data event showcasing the latest innovations in the uses of real-world cancer data and how it drives improvements for people affected by cancer.

The conference presents a unique opportunity to hear perspectives on how clinicians, policy makers, commissioners, researchers, analysts, patients, carers and international representatives are using cancer data in cancer care. It will also provide a variety of learning opportunities across the two days including plenary talks, parallel sessions and discussion opportunities, allowing delegates to share and exchange knowledge and network with the whole cancer community.

The National Cancer Registration and Analysis Service (NCRAS) is offering bursaries for patients, carers and members of the public to attend the conference and information about the bursaries can be found on the event website. Applications for the bursaries close on 23rd February 2020 and applicants will be informed of the outcome on 6th March 2020.
