Alistair Burt, MP for North East Bedfordshire, attended a Parliamentary event to launch the Pathfinder 2016 Study by the charity Target Ovarian Cancer.

Pathfinder 2016 is the most-comprehensive study of its kind into the lives of people living and working with ovarian cancer in the UK. It surveyed women in the general population, women with ovarian cancer, GPs, nurses, friends and family to provide a comprehensive assessment of how lives can be saved and improvements made.

Alistair said, "I'm really pleased to be here to ensure that all women with ovarian cancer get the care, support and new treatments that are needed, so that women's lives are transformed, now and in future."

He met constituent and campaigner Amanda Cawthorn from Biggleswade at the event who said, “Today I'm in Parliament to call on Government and health bodies to invest in ovarian cancer care and support. I have been through the system and received surgery and chemotherapy after my diagnosis. It is so important that the 25,000 women living with ovarian cancer in the UK all feel counted, and receive the best care and access to new treatments."
