Have your say on the future of research relevant to living with and beyond cancer

More and more people are living with the consequences of cancer and its treatment - what we have termed living with and beyond cancer. But there’s not enough research relevant to living with and beyond cancer.

The National Cancer Research Institute is working on a project to change this. They have opened a new survey for patients, the people who look after or have looked after them, and the professionals who work with them, to identify the most important questions that research should address – this is the second survey in their project. The survey will close on 12 April 2018. You can find out more about the project at
