Lung cancer care under fire in Scotland8th June 2009
The Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation has said its most recent "report card" on Scotland's cancer services has shown lung cancer is "low on the government's agenda".
The report revealed that since 2007 services had not been made better in six out of eight categories. Government data showed that around 4,500 new cases of lung cancer are diagnosed annually in Scotland. Only 8.2% of patients were alive after a five-year period, in comparison to 16.8% on Iceland.
