Our policy work

Our vision is of a day when cervical cancer is eliminated. Until then, we will campaign for excellence in the diagnosis, prevention, treatment, and care of those affected by cervical cancer and cervical cell changes. 

 

Eliminating cervical cancer

The UK has the tools to make cervical cancer a thing of the past, and we're calling for government action to make this happen as soon as possible. We want to see action to tackle the inequalities in cervical cancer prevention and diagnosis, NHS systems and workforces that are future-proofed, and research to improve the treatment and care provided.

Research and reports

We amplify the voices of patients and share best practice with healthcare professionals, to improve women's experiences of cervical cancer prevention and treatment.

Recent consultation responses

By responding to consultations, we help shape government strategies around cancer diagnosis and treatment, women's health, and long-term healthcare planning. 

We routinely respond to consultations from the National Institute for Health & Care Excellence (NICE), the Scottish Medicines Consortium (SMC), the All Wales Medicines Strategy Group (AWMSG), and the Joint Committee on Vaccination and Immunisation (JCVI) in order to shape decisions on the provision of cancer drugs and HPV vaccination strategies. 

 

The HPV Coalition

The HPV Coalition launched in 2022 and is an expert advisory group of leading patient groups, professional groups, clinicians, and expert individuals who have come together to inform and advance the UK’s journey towards the elimination of HPV-related cancers. Jo's are proud to be one of the co-chairs of the Coalition, with our CEO Samatha Dixon sitting alongside David Winterflood, CEO of NOMAN.

Together, we have launched a roadmap to eliminate all HPV-related cancers in the UK. Read more about it here >
