***Full-scale policy conference taking place online***

This conference will discuss cancer care, prevention and research in England - looking at the priorities for diagnostics, local care delivery, accessing innovation and meeting national ambitions for cancer.

The conference is bringing together key stakeholders to assess progress on meeting the national targets set for cancer in the NHS Long Term Plan.

We also expect discussion to focus on the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on those affected by cancer, their diagnosis and treatment and what can be learned for the future from steps that the NHS is taking to enable patients to continue treatment and have check-ups.

It comes with NHS England warning people still to come forward if they have any concerns around cancer symptoms during the COVID-19 pandemic amid reports of a significant proportion of service users having worries around getting help.
