 Responding to the cancer waiting times for November 2018, published today by NHS England, Dr Fran Woodard, Executive Director of Policy and Impact at Macmillan Cancer Support, says:

“Behind these figures are people waiting anxiously for a diagnosis and treatment, during a period when lives are already being turned upside down, despite the best efforts of NHS Staff facing greater demand for their services and increased pressures.

 

“If the NHS is to deliver on its ambitious aim of earlier diagnosis and person-centred care for everyone living with cancer, we need a fully costed plan for the workforce to build on the measures in NHS England’s long-term plan.”
