Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust’s response to the Government’s announcement of greater investment to improve early cancer diagnosis and long term support

Sun, 13/09/2015 - 00:01

The charity is pleased to see that recommendations from the recently announced Cancer Taskforce Report are already being taken forward. We hope that the new plan will see a much needed improvement in early diagnosis and survival rates, which are currently lower in England than in many other developed countries.

It is also positive to learn about plans for a personalised recovery package. We know all too well that for many of the women diagnosed with cervical cancer who we support the long term impacts of treatments are enormous and affect all aspects of their lives. Too few are offered the physical, psychological and practical assistance they need. This inequity urgently needs to be addressed and we sincerely hope that what is being suggested is implemented as soon as possible to turn this around.

- Robert Music, Chief Executive of Jo's Cervical Cancer Trust
