Radiotherapy Provision In The UK

EDM number 1559 in 2017-19, proposed by Timothy Farron on 24/07/2018.
Categorised under the topic of Health services.

That this House notes that one in two people in the UK now develop cancer at some point in their lives; recognises radiotherapy is needed in approximately 50 per cent of cancer cases; further recognises that radiotherapy receives only five per cent of the NHS cancer budget; regrets that the UK cancer survival rates lag behind Europe in nine out of 10 cancers; and urges the Government to ring-fence £250 million of the £20 billion promised to the NHS for a one-off investment to fully modernise radiotherapy and to increase the annual radiotherapy budget from five per cent of the cancer budget to 6.5 per cent to meet future demand.

This motion has been signed by a total of 13 MPs.
