Danish doctors need more radiotherapy resources:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The head of the Danish association of doctors (Laegeforeningen), Jesper Poulsen, has backed a report by the ministry of health calling for cancer specialists to spend more time treating patients and developing new methods of treatment and less time in travelling. A lack of educated and experienced doctors in various regions forces specialists to travel, he concedes, but this could be averted if there were simply an expansion of radiotherapy resources at existing centres. In this way, it would encourage patients to travel to the specialists and not vice versa. He acknowledges that this will not be a universally popular move.
