Welcome to Macmillan’s new Evidence and Influence Blog!
In the UK we are facing a cancer crisis. There are currently 2.5 million people living with cancer and we expect this to rise to 4 million by 2030. At Macmillan Cancer Support, we know that one organisation alone can’t address problems on this scale and the whole health and social care landscape needs to work together to find solutions.
We’ve created this blog as a place for anyone with an interest in improving the lives of people with cancer to join the conversation about how to address the cancer crisis. We want it to provide a forum for the sharing of insightful evidence, policy thinking and political analysis.
The blog will feature contributions from within Macmillan and beyond. We hope that you will want to join in the conversation.
