NCCP Consultations

From time to time, the NCCP conducts consultations as a method of seeking views on our work.  We believe that public consultation provides an important means by which we can enhance our work through the active involvement and contribution from stakeholders working in cancer care, patients and members of the public. All consultation responses are read and considered by the NCCP staff.
