Manifesto for the 2019 General Election

Ahead of the UK's General Election on 12 December, we are calling on all parties, candidates and the next Government to commit to reducing the impact of cancer. The next Government has an opportunity to drive up the UK’s survival rates to be among the best in the world. With 1 in 2 people in the UK diagnosed with cancer at some point in their lifetime, this could improve millions of lives and touch every family in the country.

#OneCancerVoice

One Cancer Voice ManifestoWe have joined forces with 28 other cancer charities to launch #OneCancerVoice. A manifesto that has been developed on behalf of people with cancer, providing solutions for some of the biggest issues that the next Government will face. We’re calling on the next Government to drive up the UK’s cancer survival to be among the best in the world and act to provide the best possible prevention, diagnosis, treatment and care for cancer.

To achieve this ambition, we need to:

  • Put the right staff in place
  • Diagnose cancer earlier
  • Ensure people living with cancer have access to the appropriate treatment and psychological support
  • Support people living with cancer beyond their treatment
  • Preserve the UK’s status as a world-leader in cancer research
  • Prevent people from developing cancer
