Cancer awareness gets £9m boost

21st September 2010

The government has said it will give £9 million in order to promote campaigns to heighten the population's knowledge of cancer signs.

Health minister Paul Burstow said: "The NHS is spending at European levels but still not delivering European cancer survival rates. We know that generally the earlier cancer is diagnosed, the better the outlook. That's why our campaign will help people to be more alert to the early signs and symptoms of cancer and encourage them to seek medical advice as soon as possible."
