Radiotherapy UK response to today’s cancer wait times as delays ‘normalised’

Responding to cancer waiting times data for April 2024 (published today 13/6/24) leading oncologist and co-founder of the Catch Up With Cancer campaign, Professor Pat Price said:

“Today’s cancer data is a timely reminder that the cancer crisis continues and dangerous delays have been normalised. A third of cancer patients still faced unacceptable delays and astonishingly 2,571 patients spent at least 3 months on cancer treatment waiting lists in April 2024.

“Cancer waiting times must be a national priority for the next Government. I appeal to all our leaders to commit to a dedicated cancer plan and a boost to cancer treatment. And that must include a proper boost to radiotherapy cancer treatments, technology and the cancer workforce. “
