Tackle were pleased to be involved with the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Cancer (APPGC) which has written to all CCGs in England to highlight the important role they have in improving one-year survival rates, and to offer support in helping to achieve this. Read the letter.
We fully support John Baron MP, Chairman of the APPGC who said: “If we are going to improve cancer survival rates, we must improve early diagnosis. By writing to CCGs we hope to further raise awareness of this issue, and encourage them to drive forward improvements so that thousands more people are able to survive cancer.
“We have also written to offer our support as we are conscious that CCGs do not have responsibility for broad national issues, such as the workforce. The APPGC’s summer Parliamentary reception, which recognises the 20 CCGs which have most improved their one-year figures, presents a further opportunity to engage.”
