The Cancer Research Strategy for Wales is being developed as a document for professionals to use to ensure better outcomes for cancer patients through research. But we want the people of Wales to help us shape the way we conduct cancer research and to define a better future for patients in Wales and beyond.
As a nation, we produce some of the world’s leading cancer research and we aim to strengthen our research. The strategy will reflect the priorities and ambitions of patients, charities, NHS organisations, universities, industry and Welsh Government in order to provide a common goal for cancer researchers in Wales for the next ten years.
The strategy is being developed in collaboration, bringing together over a dozen different research organisations to enable a consistent approach across the nation. The only missing party is you. Help us make this strategy the best it can be.
This is your strategy.
We’re undergoing a twelve week consultation from August to October 2019 to find out if you think we’ve got the right priority areas for cancer research. We have identified
- Cancer prevention and early detection
- Researching and embedding novel therapeutics and treatments
- Understanding how we can better support those living with cancer during and after treatment
as key research areas. These priorities are all supported by the improved use of data, discovery science, and staff within the NHS.
Join us at one of our consultation sessions across Wales to share your thoughts with us:
- 7th August Wrexham: Catrin Finch Centre in Glyndwr University. 13:30 – 15:30
