Scottish Cancer Prevention Network

What We Do

The Aims of the Network

The Scottish Cancer Prevention Network is focused on moving evidence on cancer risk reduction into everyday life, practice and policy. Whilst it is recognised that governments do much to support changing behaviours we also recognise that there is much more to do, more agencies than can help to accelerate change and there is a need to increase capacity around cancer prevention.

The SCPN is made up of people as patients, professionals and the public at large – everyone with a commitment towards cancer prevention is welcome.

To date we have members from the NHS, Cross Party groups on Cancer and Obesity, Academics, the Food Standards Agency, NGO and cancer agencies, and the Scottish Government.

The SCPN promotes action for cancer prevention by hosting workshops and conferences, and dissemination news on recent research, initiatives and events through its website and newsletters.
