Ensure access to treatment and screening for all cancer patients during Covid-19

Petition Details

I want the Government to make provisions, such as increased funding for the NHS, to ensure cancer patients still receive care including operations, scans, medications and chemotherapy during Covid-19. This should also ensure patients who need to be screened for potential cancers can access this.

Additional Information

There are thousands of people that a have had treatments and scans paused or delayed for a long time. There are people out there now that have had cancer regrowth and are even now on end-of-life care.

You can’t tell people you’re saving them from a virus by shielding then tell them they are having their treatments paused.
