We welcomed about 25 Cancer52 members to our All Members Meeting, with a packed agenda:
Brad Groves, Deputy CDF Operational Lead at NHS England, gave a presentation on progress of the 'new' Cancer Drugs Fund. He's taken some questions away (I think he is happy to have more!) and is already in touch with one of our members by way of follow up
David Fitzgerald, National Cancer Programme Director for NHS England, gave an update on progress on the Cancer Strategy, and Strategy Lead for the National Cancer Programme at NHSE, Sarah Benger, gave us an update on the evolving and newly funded NHS plan, with cancer as a focus. As a result of this we're now very happy to share an invitation with all Cancer52 members to a meeting with National Cancer Director Cally Palmer for all Cancer52 members - see here for details. It's very soon!
'Brighter Together' who are working for us on influencing the next Cancer Strategy in their presentation shared top line findings from the member survey to date and asked members to feed into next steps.
