How to get involved:

As a Taskforce we have identified three priorities for action, with attention to cross-cutting issues that include research, new practices that should be sustained, economic impact assessment, widening inequalities including those related to gender and planning for recovery and mitigation:
 

  1. Assess and report on the direct risk of Covid-19 to cancer patients and the impact of the response to the pandemic on quality of cancer care and related outcomes.
    A first high level survey closes on the 15th May:
