Development of UK Mesothelioma Alliance

The UK Mesothelioma Alliance was established in 2017 to bring together mesothelioma stakeholders as one voice to raise awareness of mesothelioma through agreed projects.

A website is currently under development and will shortly be launched.

The alliance is open to all non-commercial mesothelioma stakeholders such as campaigners, support groups and asbestos charities.

The UK Mesothelioma Alliance believes that:

  • Equitable access to treatment and care wherever patients are in the UK is crucial to improve outcomes
  • Raising awareness of mesothelioma and the dangers of asbestos is vital to both increase early diagnosis and reduce exposure to asbestos

Members include mesothelioma patient/carer advocates, campaigners and charities, and asbestos charities and support groups, campaigners and trade unions. Other organisations may be co-opted onto the UKMA from time to time e.g. for the duration of a specific asbestos-related campaign.

If you would like further information about the Alliance, please contact Dawn Mckinley on 0116 296 5230 or email info@UKMesoAlliance.org
