Charities and Supporting Patients
The BGCS has a strong connection with the third sector, we believe that our links with the organisations that support our patients with us can and do provide us with different perspectives on hearing their voices.

Ovarian Cancer Action
Ovarian Cancer Action was founded in 2005 to fund research into the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of ovarian cancer. The Ovarian Cancer Action Research Centre was opened a year later and the charity has since invested more than £11.4 million in research at the Centre and other institutions, more than any other ovarian cancer charity.
Ovarian Cancer Action also works to raise awareness of the condition amongst the general public and GPs, including improving access to genetic testing, and campaigning for change with the government.
