Women in the UK to have the best treatment possible

What we want

  • Women deserve the best treatment for ovarian cancer that the world has to offer
  • All women with ovarian cancer should be seen by a specialist gynaecological surgeon and have the option of being treated in a major specialist centre if they wish
  • All women should be given the best possible information on therapeutic options and service providers in order to take informed action
  • Hospital-specific data should be published on the outcomes of surgery and survival rates post five years


  • The UK has amongst the lowest post five-year survival rates in Western Europe
  • We want to see this gap closed and for women in the UK to have the same opportunities for progression free survival as leading countries
