Reply to "Financial Help for Cancer Patients (U.K.)"

Hello Tracey

Was at Britain Against Cancer 2007 with John S and Ray Y. At BAC2007, I asked 2 questions to Prof Mike Richards, after thanking him about his presentation of the Cancer Reform Strategy (CRS) (good things - see link below), about HPV vaccine for boys too and problems cancer patients were having with getting patient financial support. Also met key people from Cancer Research UK and Macmillan to make sure H&N cancer patients (through MCF) are represented as stakeholders in the workshop/ meetings on survivor network and support issues planned in Feb and March 2008 as part of the CRS implementation process. The Cancer Reform Strategy mentions financial support for patients and carers as areas for improvement. It is available to read at:
