Abridged consultations for cancer datasets and tissue pathways

When minor changes are needed to datasets or tissue pathways (e.g. updating references, adding new non-core data items or comments on staging), we hold a two-week abridged consultation. As always, we encourage members to give feedback on these proposals, using the response 'buttons' below. Please ensure you have logged in to be able to access these documents. 

There are no abridged consultations at present.
