Moondance Cancer Awards

Celebrating brilliant people and brave ideas across Wales

The Moondance Cancer Awards celebrate and spotlight brilliant people across NHS Wales and its partners who have maintained, and innovated, cancer services despite the extraordinary circumstances of the last two years.

In hosting these awards, we want both to thank people who have worked – and continue to work - tirelessly across all stages of cancer detection, diagnosis and treatment pathways; and to showcase that improvement is happening.
