In the light of the Government's response to the COVID 19 incident, and with clinical and other staff deployed to support clinical cases and other support services, the Cancer Alliance has taken the decision to cancel a number of meetings and events.

Viability of all meetings will be kept under review and wherever appropriate, will be used to support the wider COVID 19 incident and held by video conference or conference call.

This page will be updated regularly to reflect the latest position.
