Dame Tessa Jowell

As Guild members will be aware, our president Dame Tessa Jowell died at the weekend.

We would like to extend our sincere condolences to her family. After diagnosis of brain cancer Dame Tessa campaigned for better and more consistent cancer care and for the ‘gold standard’ diagnosis technique using a dye to identify tumours to be used nationwide.

The Prime Minister Theresa May today announced increased funding for brain cancer research as a tribute to Baroness Jowell. Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt has announced the dye process will now be available nationwide.
