Cancer strategy consultation launches in Scotland

  • Comment
NHS staff, patients and carers across Scotland are being given the opportunity to contribute to the country’s new cancer strategy.
The Scottish Government has launched a consultation inviting people to contribute their views on issues such as prevention, screening, diagnosis, treatment, palliative care, quality of care and patient experience. There will also be a drive to reduce waits for cancer treatment.

The consultation will take place over the next 12 weeks and the final strategy will be published in the summer. Anyone wishing to contribute can fill in this form.


Cabinet secretary for health and wellbeing, Nicola Sturgeon, said: ‘Cancer affects us all at some point in our lives, whether as a patient, carer, friend or family, or indeed as a healthcare professional providing care and treatment for people with cancer.’
