McCoy & Phillips: Cancer delays in the NHS

GBNews published this video item, entitled “McCoy & Phillips: Cancer delays in the NHS” – below is their description.

After a group of 47 cancer charities called for urgent action or the UK’s cancer death rate will rise for the first time in decades, an expert oncologist is adding his voice in support.

Professor Karol Sikora says the government need to take responsibility for NHS cancer delays. “You have to wait six weeks to see your doctor. No other country in Europe has that,” he said.

NHS figures suggest tens of thousands fewer people started cancer treatment since the first lockdown compared to before COVID.
