Our Cancer Alliance aims to improve the lives of people affected by cancer in Greater Manchester. We are one of 21 Cancer Alliances across NHS England.

We want more people than ever to reduce their risk of developing cancer, and for those who do go on to develop cancer, we want to improve their survival outcomes and experiences.

We work in collaboration with organisations across our region to help people get diagnosed earlier, provide better treatment and support people to live well with and beyond cancer.

The first Greater Manchester Cancer Awards are now open for entries! We know how much amazing work is happening in cancer care and research across the whole of Greater Manchester, and we want to celebrate those who have the dedication to go above and beyond every day to improve outcomes and experiences for people affected by cancer in our region.

Closing date for entries: 31st August 2022
