Test Cancer Sooner
In 2015, the Government confirmed the NHS would have up to £300m each year until 2020 to invest into diagnosing cancer earlier.
Why did we campaign on this issue?
Early diagnosis saves lives. People are 3 times more likely to survive cancer if they’re diagnosed early.
We wanted the Government and NHS to make sure that 95% of people receive the results of their cancer tests within 4 weeks. This meant the NHS would need increased investment into diagnostic services – endoscopies, scans and others tests to meet the growing demand.
