29 new cancer screening units
- Catching cancer early saves lives. Last year 100,000 people were diagnosed with cancer at stages one and two. This is the highest proportion on record but we want to do better still.
- That is why the Conservative government has promised an extra £10 million of taxpayers' money to deliver 29 new breast cancer screening units, 58 remote access upgrades and nearly 70 life-saving service upgrades to speed up diagnosis and treatment of breast cancer.
- These new units and upgrades will mean more people get checked for cancer, closer to home - helping us catch cancer earlier so we can get people on the path to early treatment and save lives.
