ABSTRACT
The article reports on the plans of the government of Great Britain to pledge £370 million to improve cancer care in the country. The pledge is part of a cancer reform strategy which has been designed to speed up the diagnosis and treatment of the disease which emphasizes prevention and an increase in screening services. Under the strategy all patients with symptoms in a breast, whether or not cancer is suspected will be seen by a specialist within two weeks of their first visit, and the age at which patients are screened for breast and bowel cancer will be lowered.
