The Cancer Prevention Society (CPS) was formed in January 1978, with the backing of the Scottish TUC. Conceived as a cancer pressure group, it set itself the goal of dealing exclusively with ways of preventing cancer. The Society was based in Glasgow.
Named directors of the CPS were former factories inspector G E (Ted) Rushworth, his wife Anne Rushworth, née Booth, and international asbestosis campaigner Nancy Tait. At the time, Tait was a Churchill Fellow and future founder of the charity SPAID (Society for the Prevention of Asbestosis and Industrial Diseases), subsequently the Occupational and Environmental Diseases Association (OEDA).
