Commenting on the publication of geographic patterns of cancer survival in England released by the Office for National Statistics, Lynda Thomas, Chief Executive at Macmillan Cancer Support says:
“People with cancer should feel confident that their chances of survival don’t depend on where they live. While some areas have made notable improvements, the overall picture is mixed. The chance of somebody surviving stomach cancer, for instance, should not vary by area as much as it does[i].
“Early diagnosis and fast access to treatment is absolutely key to a patient’s chance of survival. These figures underline the need for the NHS to take action at a local level to get people diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible.”
