Children, teenagers and young adults who survive cancer can then face long-term health impacts as a result of their disease and the intense treatments they received, however, these impacts are poorly understood. Prof. Mike Hawkins and his team will conduct the largest and most comprehensive national study to date on the long-term impacts faced by survivors, focusing on GP prescriptions, use of mental health services and healthcare costs. The results could help to better support survivors, guide clinical practice and influence health policy.
