Project Description

The death rate is higher in Yorkshire than the rest of England resulting in about 200 extra deaths each year of which more than half are in Hull. There are other significant cancer outcome inequalities between different groups; for example poorer people and older people are more likely to die sooner. We will conduct research to understand these differences and develop and test ways to reduce the inequalities and improve access to care and best treatments. We need to attract the best researchers to Yorkshire to do this work and attract more national research funding
