by ENGINE MHP for Bristol Myers Squibb

Summary of work

Each year, almost 50,000 people in the UK are diagnosed with lung cancer; it is the third most common cancer and the leading cause of cancer deaths.iUK lung cancer survival rates are some of the lowest in Europe.ii,iii

There is an urgent need for action. To bring lessons from other countries back to the UK, we established an expert steering group to take evidence from European lung cancer clinicians. This led to a policy report,Gaining perspective, which was launched in Parliament in England and was shared in the devolved nations at workshops with professionals and decision-makers.

England and Scotland are now implementing these recommendations and addressing lung cancer as a public health priority with other regions to follow.
