As part of our campaigning and advocacy work we are involved in a number of organisations and coalitions on behalf of patients, which aim to ensure that the collective voice of cancer patients is heard.
These organisations maximise the combined experience, knowledge and influence of their membership to ensure that the interests of patients are considered across a variety of areas. We are a member of a number of UK, European and global organisations to ensure that the views of blood cancer patients are properly represented in all areas of our work.
