Dr Ian Lewis – Tenovus, Cardiff, UK

Dr Ian Lewis speaks to about a recent initiative where patients contribute to assessment of funding bids submitted to Tenovus.


Following a survey carried out in Tenovus stores across England and Wales asking what customers thought should be the priorities of Tenovus funding, a panel was set up consisting of patients, carers and other people who have been affected by cancer.


Dr Lewis discusses how the panel has successfully assessed clinical trial funding bids and explains how the project will be improved and expanded in the future.
