Annual Summit 2020: Improving Outcomes Now

30 March 2020 Start time: 9:00 AM Registration fee: FREE


Postponement of the Annual Summit

After careful reflection, we have taken the difficult decision to postpone our Annual Summit following the outbreak of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

While those due to join us will share our disappointment in the delay to what has become a hugely popular opportunity to share knowledge and collaborate, the wellbeing of our community must always be our first priority. With so many of our attendees being health professionals, who play a vital role in delivering the care people affected by pancreatic cancer rely upon, it would not be right to risk adding more pressure to colleagues across the NHS at this challenging time. People affected by pancreatic cancer are also an integral part of the Summit as we bring the whole community together. Their wellbeing is of paramount importance to us and we do not want to increase the risk of patients and their loved ones coming into contact with the virus.

We look forward to bringing everyone together at a later date to help deliver the change needed to transform the future for people affected by pancreatic cancer. 


Our Annual Summit 2020: Improving Outcomes Now is an essential event for anyone with an interest in pancreatic cancer.

In the last fifty years, pancreatic cancer survival rates have barely changed and recent data shows concerning variation in the treatment and care people receive. We can’t afford to wait – by tackling this inconsistency we can change outcomes for those diagnosed with pancreatic cancer now and we need your help to make that happen.

At this Summit, we’ll be focusing on three areas where we believe we can make changes in 2020 to improve outcomes for patients now: improving access to chemotherapy and optimal nutritional care, and speeding up the pathway from diagnosis to treatment.

Through keynote speakers, workshops and a panel discussion, we’ll explore the latest developments and opportunities and work together as an active community to determine what needs to change to ensure everyone diagnosed gets the best care and treatment for them.
