The draft National Cancer Strategy is currently being finalised and I expect it to be submitted to me before the end of the year, after which it will be brought to Government in advance of publication.

Officials in my Department have worked with the Steering Group over the past year to develop a Strategy aimed at providing the best possible outcomes for Irish patients. The Strategy will seek to address all aspects of cancer, including prevention, early diagnosis, treatment and the quality of life of those living with and beyond cancer.
