Wales Cancer Conference 2017

Harpul

We were proud to deliver the recent Wales Cancer Conference in collaboration with the Wales Cancer Network and Wales Cancer Alliance.  The partnership between cancer research and cancer multidisciplinary teams is critical to improving outcomes for patients.  Excellent research delivers future change in the understanding of treatment and care across the patient pathway.

The Wales Cancer Conference was held on 23 & 24 November, and brought together experts from the health care sector and research to discuss the changes needed to improve outcomes for patients in Wales. The conference acted as a platform to showcase excellence in cancer care and research, and demonstrated the importance that the third sector plays in care and research delivery.

The conference attracted a range of high-profile speakers, including: 

  • Sir Harpal Kumar (Chief Executive Officer of Cancer Research UK)
  • Prof Jane Maher, (Chief Medical Officer, Macmillan Cancer Support)
  • Prof Andrew Hughes (Professor of Experimental Cancer Medicine, The Christie)
  • Vaughan Gething AM (Cabinet Secretary for Health, Well-being and Sport) 

300 delegates attended the conference, and the feedback we have received has been overwhelmingly positive. Delegates indicated that there is a desire for more conferences of this kind in the future.
