About the network

The Lung Cancer Policy Network brings together a range of lung cancer expertise including screening, patient organisations and industry partners. Our members contribute their time for free. The Network’s activities are led by its members, with all materials representing a consensus view of the experts contributing to the Network. All outputs produced by the Network are non-promotional.

The Network is funded by multiple organisations. Details of funding tiers are included in the Terms of Reference.
