Cancer Research UK's 'Awareness roadshow' comes to Parliament

I got on board with the campaign to diagnose cancer earlier, as Cancer Research UK's 'Awareness roadshow' came to Parliament.

Early detection saves lives, so it was great to meet the roadshow team and learn more about spotting cancer early, as well as the vital work being done to beat the disease.

Events like this are important reminders we can all play a part in the fight against cancer, whether it be researchers, campaigners or the tireless fundraisers across North Cornwall who are helping to support life-saving research.

Diagnosing cancer earlier – when it is more likely to be treated successfully - is a vital part of ensuring more people survive cancer.

The Government has made a commitment to diagnose 75% of cancer cases in England at stage one or stage two by 2028.

However, to reach this target the NHS needs a long-term plan for the cancer workforce who deliver the crucial cancer tests and treatments people need.
