Leo Varadkar TD, Minister for Health recently announced a public consultation on the development of a National Cancer Strategy for 2016-2025. The Department of Health is seeking the views of the public on cancer services and on priorities for a new cancer strategy. ICORG has welcomed the announcement and believe that Clinical Research has to be prioritised in the next Cancer Strategy. Through appropriate funding ICORG should be placed in a strong position to bring more new treatments to Irish cancer patients.
