As more people are diagnosed with cancer, it’s essential that the NHS is equipped with the staff and kit needed now and in the years to come. The Plan must help the NHS grow, support & retain cancer doctors and nurses.
The upcoming 10-year Cancer Plan is a vital opportunity to tackle the cancer care backlog and ensure people affected by cancer have the care they need, now and in the future. This must be a priority.
Cancer services are buckling under immense pressure. People with cancer are paying the price. The new Prime Minister must address the staffing challenges facing the NHS. We cannot afford to wait for the chaos in Westminster to subside. @trussliz @RishiSunak are you listening?
There are 11 million people in the UK who are deaf or hard of hearing. After a cancer diagnosis, not all are able to receive the extra help they need. Meet Niki, a Macmillan & Self Help UK-funded Deaf Buddy who is doing whatever it takes to support those living with cancer.
