NHS England confirm that radiotherapy services will not be moved out of Cornwall after thousands responded to consultation

Cornwall’s MPs have been assured by NHS England representatives that radiotherapy services will not be moved out of the county. The MPs and health officials met at Westminster this week to discuss the future of radiotherapy services and modernisation proposals following NHS England’s public consultation last October which saw thousands of local residents respond amid fears the changes could impact on cancer patients in Cornwall.

    That’s great news for cancer patients requiring radiotherapy in Cornwall; the MPs and others are to be congratulated on their campaign. It confirms what I’ve always believer, however, that keeping something you don’t want to lose is easier that getting something you’ve haven’t got. A good example of the latter is West Sussex, the only county is England without radiotherapy facilities, despite having a population of 843,000, where the small radiotherapy unit was closed in 2006. There have been endless commitments by the NHS to replace that unit ever since, but nothing concrete has materialised.
