Varying prostate cancer services

12th March 2008

Health experts have called for prostate cancer services to be improved to help tackle the wide variations in care seen across England.

There are about 35,000 men diagnosed with prostate cancer each year in the UK with about 10,000 deaths but the experts say patients need to be encouraged to seek help earlier. The Prostate Cancer Charter for Action found death rates from the cancer varied and were twice as high, for example, in the London borough of Lewisham than in nearby Southwark.
