It will innovate and share best practice through the funding of service transformation and research projects, through the dissemination of research and provision of education and training. It will lobby NHS Wales and Welsh Government to disrupt sub-optimum arrangements and transform clinical and commissioning pathways to improve the prevention, screening, diagnosis and treatment of cancers in Wales.
