Message to forum contributors
Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to contribute to this comment thread. We have been overwhelmed by the number of very moving stories which you have been willing to share with us. Please accept our sincere condolences to all those who have lost loved ones or who are currently suffering as a result of a brain tumour.
All of the responses posted here will be enormously helpful to the Committee’s inquiry and we are extremely grateful.
The Committee will now hold several ‘oral evidence’ sessions to continue gathering information on this issue. It will also hold an informal meeting with those affected and we hope that will include some of you.
The first formal session is on Tuesday 3 November at 2.15pm when the Committee will be speaking to the petition creators and some charities about many of the issues you have raised. You can attend or watch/listen live online.
We hope you will continue to follow the Committee’s inquiry. Please follow the inquiry page for updates, or follow the Committee on Twitter: @HoCpetitions
