Working in Cancer

The evidence is shocking: If you come from an area of deprivation you are more likely to get cancer, you are more likely to present later and you are less likely to have successful treatment. The picture is complicated but SHF believes that how things are now, is not how things should be in the future. We are developing a partnership with Cancer Research UK with the aim of finding innovative solutions to help prevent cancer among people in areas of deprivation; to support patients and clinicians in early diagnosis; and support patients to ensure their treatment is completed.
