Successful Parliamentary Drop-in Session

0 0 Permanent Link

To mark the start of parliament week we hosted a parliamentary drop-in session with Nic Dakin MP. Parliamentary drop-in sessions are an opportunity for Members’ of the House of Commons and House of Lords to come and find out more about the issues surrounding pancreatic cancer.

The session was well attended by MPs, some of whom knew very little about pancreatic cancer. We took the opportunity to give MPs information about the recommendations from our roundtable inquiry; Hope for the future: tackling inequalities in pancreatic cancer care.

A copy of the original inquiry report can be found here.

We would like to thank all the MPs who came to find out more about pancreatic cancer and what they could do to support our efforts. We would like to thank Nic Dakin MP, in particular, for hosting us and his continued championing of the fight against pancreatic cancer.
