Who are we?

We’re Radiotherapy4Life, a company created to run a campaign asking the UK government to increase funding for radiotherapy services in the UK. 50% of people with cancer would benefit from radiotherapy but not everyone who needs it will receive it. We believe that every patient should have access to the best radiotherapy treatment for their cancer as close to home as possible. Increased and sustained investment is needed to ensure the UK has a world-class radiotherapy service.

How do we collect information from you?

We obtain information about you when you use our website, for example, by signing up to Email Your MP, submitting 'Your Story' as part of the CatchUpWithCancerCampaign or if you contact us regarding our work. When this happens, you become a Data Subject.
