MP chairs radiotherapy round table meeting in Westminster

Local MP Tim Farron chaired a round table meeting of clinicians, scientists and engineers in Westminster last week to look at how access to radiotherapy treatment can be improved. Currently 40% of people with cancer will need radiotherapy treatment and yet radiotherapy only makes up 5% of the Government’s cancer budget. Last year, Tim hosted a radiotherapy reception in Parliament to highlight the need for the treatment to receive continued investment from Government and NHS England and has since become a patron of the charity Action Radiotherapy.

    Well done to Action Radiotherapy and Tim Farron MP for highlighting this important issue. I hope it results in badly-needed increased investment in Radiotherapy for the benefit of our cancer patients.

    Yes, well done to Action Radiotherapy & Tim Farron!
    Brilliant photo of Prof Pat Price with Tim sums up their optimistic & determined approach.
