Mandatory 6 months full pay for cancer patients undergoing treatment

Petition Details

Everyone knows someone undergoing cancer treatment, on top of everything that the patient deals with there is sadly a financial side. Whilst in hospital I witnessed people either being put on SSP or being made redundant. Majority of cancer patients treatment is 6 months.

Additional Information

Cancer patients on top of everything should not be having to deal with the worry of finances and should instead be focusing on getting better, not HR meetings etc I would like the UK government to implement a mandatory 6 month full pay. I was lucky my company supported me throughout and after 6 months I was able to return fully to work, sadly for the majority of patients this is not the case.
