The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer (APPGC) was founded in 1998 to keep cancer at the top of the political agenda, and to ensure that policy-making remains patient centred. The Group brings together MPs and Peers from across political parties to debate key issues and campaign together to improve cancer services.

The APPGC holds regular meetings and campaigns on a number of vital issues including the priorities for cancer within the new NHS structure, patient experience, improving survival rates and early diagnosis.

The Secretariat to the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer is provided by Macmillan Cancer Support.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer would like to thank the supporters of the 2018 Britain Against Cancer conference, which include pharmaceutical companies. All supporters have a medical expertise and commercial interest in cancer, but have had no involvement in the programme of the conference.
