Harpal Kumar - Independent Chair of the Cancer Strategy Taskforce

Harpal Kumar, Chief Executive of Cancer Research UK has been announced as the independent chair of a Task Force which will be plotting how England can handle the challenges of cancer over the next five years. He has released a statement on the CRUK science blog, which you can find here:
The five year plan will include aims for better prevention, faster diagnosis as well as better treatment, care and aftercare for every cancer sufferer.
The task force will include cancer clinicians, charity leaders, people from the royal colleges of GPs and surgeons and Public Health England as well as the NHS. It is a hugely exciting project which will have great implications for cancer patients in England. Having met Harpal Kumar several times, I really think the Task Force is in good hands! Have a read of his statement on the link above and keep an eye out for updates!!!
