Cancer

Purpose of the group

  • To act as a channel of communications between the Scottish Parliament and people and organisations working in cancer research, treatment, care and prevention.
  • To identify areas where inequalities exist in the provision of cancer care and campaign for their improvement.
  • To provide opportunities for MSPs to learn about the latest Scottish and international cancer research and to learn about cancer care needs and services, including the views of both parents and carers.
  • To examine areas of policy or service provision, including both the allocation and the effective use of resources, where there may be inequalities of practice or standards of care and to make representations for effective and timely actions.
