Richards: "UK cancer patients should ‘bother’ the GP!"

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

If the UK’s five-year cancer survival rates were raised to those of the best-performing European countries, some 11,000 lives could be saved every year.

It is hoped that the initiative, which is part of the national Cancer Reform Strategy, will address this imbalance, said Prof Richards, who is also a director of the charity, Cancer Research UK (CRUK).
