EDM number 2123 in 2007-08, proposed by Bob Russell on 21/07/2008.
Categorised under the topics of Diseases and Health services.

That this House notes the findings of the Lymphoma Association's survey of patients' experiences of their diagnosis of lymphoma; expresses concern that although lymphoma is one of the most common cancers in the UK and that there are clear symptoms indicating that a person may have the condition, there is a lack of awareness of these symptoms amongst both members of the public and GPs, with consequent and unnecessary delays in prompt and accurate diagnosis; is disappointed by the survey results showing that more than one in 10 lymphoma sufferers had to visit their GP after their initial visit on a further five occasions before being referred to a specialist; is encouraged by the results showing that pressure from families is a key factor in persuading patients to seek a diagnosis; welcomes the work of the Lymphoma Association in raising awareness of the symptoms of lymphoma and supporting patients and their families with the disease; and urges the Government to work with the lymphoma community through the National Awareness and Early Diagnosis Initiative to increase awareness of the condition and encourage its early diagnosis.

This motion has been signed by a total of 50 MPs.
