Ensure access to treatment and screening for all cancer patients during Covid-19
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.
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.
If you want to sign this petition (as opposed to merely discuss it), you need to do that on the government's e-Petitions website.
