Gaining Perspective: What Can The UK Learn From Lung Cancer Care in Europe Report
We're back at Westminster launching our latest report 'Gaining Perspective: What Can The UK Learn From Lung Cancer Care in Europe'. The Uk's current five year surivival rate for lung cancer is around 4% lower than the rest of Eyrope.
The paper has drawn on evidence from a number of European countries, providing recommendations for policymakers on several areas, including:
- Lung cancer referral and diagnosis
- Access to treatment
- Lung cancer workforce
We urge policymakers to implement our recommendations to deliver the UKLCC's aim to improve five year lung cancer surivival rates to 25% by 2025.
