Beating Cancer: Ambition and Action (2016) update: achievements, new action and testing change

An update to our 2016 cancer strategy - Beating Cancer: Ambition and Action.

Our next cancer strategy

All of these actions will help make immediate impacts across a range of areas, and build for our next strategy in 2021. We will review all actions, progress and lessons learned to help inform this. We will work through the year to enhance impacts and improvements with other related strategies and funds across Scottish Government, including but not exclusively mental health, realistic medicine, eHealth and, underpinning all this, what matters to people with cancer. Continued focus on unmet need will be crucial as will strong action to tackle continuing inequalities that must be challenged. We will continue to engage with a wide range of stakeholders on this, and their input and support will be vital to success.
