This page contains Tenovus Cancer Care’s recent policy activity that reflects our strategic aims and policy priorities.

I would like to see

When Government has an idea for something they normally ask the public what they think about it. As the voice of people affected by cancer in Wales, we respond to these consultations by telling Government what we think and by doing so help to shape the policies affecting people with cancer.

We will aim to ask the All-Wales Cancer Community to inform our responses to Government consultations to ensure the views of people affected by cancer inform Government policy.
