The Cancer Research Strategy for Wales is being developed, ready for delivery in 2020, following a recommendation in the Cancer Delivery Plan. Work commenced in August 2018 and is being led by the Wales Cancer Network (WCN), the Wales Cancer Research Centre (WCRC), and the Wales Cancer Alliance (WCA). The strategy sets out how we, as professionals, can develop and apply research to improve outcomes for cancer patients in Wales and beyond.
To enable the community to directly impact the development of the Cancer Research Strategy for Wales we conducted a 12 week consultation. We are now analysing the feedback and will share our findings with you shortly. Using the information received during the consultation period we will be re-drafting the strategy document ready for delivery later in 2020.
As well as undertaking a 12 week consultation we have also also run three consultation events across Wales. Findings from our consultation events can be found here.
