Cancer services move is not unlawful

21st October 2009

Health trusts in Cornwall have said they did not act unlawfully by deciding to move some cancer services from Cornwall to Devon without holding a full public consultation.

The Royal Cornwall Hospitals Trust and NHS Cornwall and Isles of Scilly said that they were confident they were acting within the law in moving upper gastro-intestinal cancer surgery to Plymouth from next year, though health campaigners maintain such a move was illegal without formal consultation with people who live in the county.
