On Cancer policy document

In partnership with Policy@Manchester and The University of Manchester, we have developed On Cancer which is our latest exemplar demonstrating team science research carried out in Manchester. It spotlights the evidence on which to base future policy implementations.

From pioneering early detection, and equal access of screening and treatments, to our use of cutting-edge technologies, our one Manchester partnership strives to create a future free from the burden of cancer.

On Cancer not only provides detailed and real-world evidence but also outlines clear policy recommendations that, if implemented, will improve the lives of those living with cancer.
