Since the start of the pandemic, Macmillan has been campaigning for UK Governments to make sure cancer does not become the forgotten ‘C’. We are now launching the next step of the campaign, calling for urgent investment for cancer nurses across the UK. This is crucial to delivering personalised cancer care.
Macmillan’s new research report, Cancer nursing on the line, highlights that across the UK a total investment of around £170 million is needed to fund the training costs to create nearly 4,000 specialist cancer nurses by 2030 to provide the care people need.
Macmillan have joined forces with other cancer charities to raise the alarm about the worsening crisis facing the cancer workforce. Will you add your name to the Parliamentary petition to help us reach Government with a powerful, united demand that they fund the cancer workforce?
