10 Year Cancer Plan  - Survey requesting your input by  27 March 2022

From National Federation Public Affairs
As part of the WI’s See the Signs campaign, the NFWI is partnering with Ovarian Cancer Action to submit a joint response to the Government’s 10-Year Cancer Plan call for evidence.
Although the 10-Year Cancer Plan is for England, the survey is open to everyone in the UK, the Isle of Man, Jersey, and Guernsey (members and non-members). You do not have to live in England or have personal experiences of ovarian cancer to take part.
This is a key chance to raise awareness of the need for everyone to know the signs of ovarian cancer and to improve diagnosis. It is vital that as many members as possible share their views and experiences so that we can make a strong case to the Government. Please share this link as widely as you can.

We would appreciate your support by sharing the following link to the survey with your members/non-members .

The survey will close on 27 March 2022.

Note from National Federation

Please note that the timeline for the consultation on the 10-Year Cancer Plan was set by the Government. We would ordinarily give members much longer to take part in surveys like this, but the Government’s timetable means that on this occasion we have a very limited window to gather feedback from members and submit our response. We appreciate your understanding regarding the timing of this activity.

Alma House will be open from 1 February 2022

Tuesday - Friday 9:30-12:30 and 1:30-3:00

(Closed for lunch 12:30-1:00).
