Lung cancer care not good enough

2nd November 2009

The umbrella group UK Lung Cancer Care Coalition has said that some important parts of lung cancer care in the UK are still "woefully inadequate".

Their report found that survival rates were behind those found in Europe and only 51% of patients were given some kind of treatment. Dame Gill Oliver, chairman of the coalition, says: "We are still letting lung cancer patients down. Our review shows there are still huge variations and vast inequalities in care across the country."
