Patients and clinicians to attend Lincolnshire cancer conference

Cancer fighters 2018

Patients and clinicians will join together to drive improvements in cancer services and treatment in Lincolnshire at an upcoming conference.

The Lincolnshire Cancer Summit will take place on Tuesday, March 27 at the Golf Hotel in Woodhall Spa.  

According to research, one in every two people in the UK will get cancer in their lifetime, with it affecting many others as a result.

The interactive event will see patients and more than 50 senior health experts discuss cancer treatment pathways. It will be an opportunity to understand the latest in cancer treatments, how we encourage local people to attend screening appointments and become cancer aware and how we support people to live with and beyond cancer.
