UK Labour party pledges £330m cancer fund

The UK Labour party is going head-to-head with the Conservatives by pledging £330m to improve access to cancer treatments on the NHS. Shadow health secretary Andy Burnham said: “The problem with cancer policy under the current Government is that it prioritises one form of cancer treatment over others and places one group of patients ahead of another. This is indefensible when we know surgery and radiotherapy are responsible for nine in ten cases where cancer is cured.”
