Mapping a picture of lung cancer in England and Scotland
In 2011, the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation commissioned two reports looking at variations in treatment and outcomes for lung cancer in England and Scotland.
The reports found significant geographical variation, both in terms of patient survival and patient access to care and treatment.
The purpose of the reports was to inform all those with an interest in the provision of lung cancer services. We hope the reports will encourage an assessment of any variation and, where possible, lead to solutions and improvements.
In bringing those areas with poorer service and outcomes up to the standard of the best, the lung cancer patient experience will be improved and lives will be saved.
