On 13th November Nick Thomas-Symonds MP visited Pancreatic Cancer Action’s drop-in session in Westminster. Drop-in sessions are opportunities for Members to learn more about issues that affect their constituents. The session took place during Pancreatic Cancer Awareness Month.

Pancreatic cancer is a devastating disease. It has the highest death rate of all common cancers. 26 people are diagnosed a day and 24 people will die each day from the disease. Survival rates increase significantly however if diagnosed in time for surgery.

Mr. Thomas-Symonds discussed with Pancreatic Cancer Action the recommendations from their roundtable report Hope for the future: Tackling inequalities in pancreatic cancer care and is proud to have contributed to the evidence sessions on which the report is based.

Pancreatic cancer is a cause that Nick has campaigned on consistently alongside local campaigner Linda Reardon and supported the work of Pancreatic Cancer Action and other charities over the last two years.
