About the Scottish Cancer Coalition
In 2003 the Scottish Cancer Coalition was created to support and challenge Ministers, MSPs, the Scottish Government and NHS Scotland to develop and deliver first class cancer research, prevention and treatment services. In the 10 years since its inception, the collaborative efforts and influence of the Coalition has gone from strength-to-strength.
How we work
The Scottish Cancer Coalition meets regularly to discuss and share information on cancer policy in Scotland and areas for collaboration.
As individual members we are available to provide information, advice and support on the specific cancers we represent, and engage on health policy affecting individual cancers.
