Rethinking Cancer: Realising the potential for improved survival

In December Barbara attended a parliamentary round table discussion hosted by Bristol-Myers Squibb (BMS).  The meeting brought together Parliamentarians, policy experts and patient groups to consider the implications for patients, employers, the economy and society at large.

The event followed a recent report supported by BMS and prepared by the International Longevity Centre – UK (ILC-UK).
