Earlier this year we asked you to tell us how care and treatment for people affected by pancreatic cancer needs to change. The ideas you submitted via our Change Ideas Wall showed that there are unacceptable variations in quality and consistency of care across the UK, and that more needs to be done to drive improvements in early diagnosis.
Working together as a community is what the Summit is all about. Throughout the day it was highlighted on a number of occasions that everyone in the pancreatic cancer community must work together in order to #ChangeTogether. It was therefore fantastic to see the community so well represented, with health professionals, influencers, researchers, patients and family members coming together and sharing inspiring ideas.
