Radiotherapy4Life and #CatchUpWithCancer has engaged with the All Party Parliamentary Group for Radiotherapy (APPGRT) and has developed a network of extremely supportive MPs; some of whom have heard first-hand concerns from their constituents about their cancer treatment.
There have been over 60 written and oral parliamentary questions in the House of Commons and House of Lords.
Two early-day motions have been submitted - 'Catch up with cancer and 'Inquiry into the adequacy of radiotherapy'
Eight formal letters have been sent to ministers, including:
1 April 2020: The APPGRT sent a letter to the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock, warning about the impact of COVID-19 on cancer services
21 August 2020: 107 MPs signed an APPGRT and #CatchUpWithCancer cross-party letter to the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson
11 February 2021: 70 parliamentarians signed a letter to the Prime Minister, Boris Johnson and the Chancellor of the Exchequer, Rishi Sunak
The APPGRT has held seven meetings with ministers, including the Secretary of State for Health and Social Care, Matt Hancock, on 6 October 2020.
