Cancer Campaigning Group

The Cancer Campaigning Group is a coalition of cancer charities of which Tackle is a member. Founded in 2002, it enables cancer charities to speak and campaign with a single unified voice.

The aim of the CCG is to campaign for improved cancer policy and services in the areas of prevention; care and treatment; patient involvement and choice; and research.

Cancer Registration

When a person is diagnosed with cancer in England, information about them is automatically included in the national cancer registry.

It is data from cancer registries that tells us how many people are diagnosed with cancer, what treatments they have, how long they live, and whether this is getting better or worse. This information can then be used to help plan cancer services and identify where further progress is needed in order to improve the lives of all people affected by cancer.

Access to Cancer Medicines Coalition

This is a coalition of 19 cancer charities which follows from the Cancer Drugs Fund Coalition. The group meets regularly to review developments in the cancer drugs space, as well as implications of major government programmes and repercussions of (for example) Brexit.  This last issue is of particular importance as the European Medicines Agency is planning to relocate from London to Amsterdam and the coalition is concerned about the impact on drug developments, pricing and availability.
