Taking Action in Scotland

Pancreatic Cancer Action Scotland is dedicated to the people of Scotland whose lives have been touched by pancreatic cancer and associated tumours.

In 2020 Pancreatic Cancer Action (PCA) and Pancreatic Cancer Scotland (PCS) merged to become one organisation, with our shared vision and determination to make the 2020’s the Decade of Change for the world’s toughest cancer.

Our merger is a commitment to the people of Scotland, and the UK, of a stronger united force, pulling together to take determined action to change the numbers and improve the outcomes for everyone affected by pancreatic cancer.

Legacy funds from PCS and all future funds raised in Scotland shall continue to benefit the people of Scotland through our initiatives, projects and activities.

Our supporters, patients and families are at the heart of all that we do and fuel our passion to drive the change that pancreatic cancer so desperately needs
