This entry is part 14 of 21 in the series That Cancer Conversation


We’ve made huge progress on cancer in the last 50 years. 

But not all of it has been felt equally. People’s experience of the healthcare system, and ultimately how likely they are to be successfully diagnosed and treated, varies massively. These are known as health inequalities and can be caused by a range of factors. 

In this episode of That Cancer Conversation, we’re exploring how deprivation impacts cancer inequalities and what we can do to narrow the gap. 

We speak to Cancer Research advocate and public health manager for Luton, Elizabeth Bailey, the lead researcher of the Inequalities Cancer Outcome Network programme, Professor Bernard Rachet and Julia Cotterill, a health information officer here at Cancer Research UK.  

If you’d like to talk to someone, our nurses are available Monday to Friday 9-5pm on freephone 0808 800 4040.
