Prostate cancer kills as many men as breast cancer kills women, but research into it has been poorly funded for most of the past 40 years. There’s a severe shortage of specialist NHS prostate cancer nurses, and prostate cancer patients endure long waiting times, a lack of access to drugs, pain medication, and trials. In our election manifesto (pp 61-65) we made proposals on the subject.
Our thanks to Tim for pointing us to this. Please contact Prostate Cancer UK if:
1. You were denied a treatment for prostate cancer because it either a) wasn’t available on the NHS or b) it was judged to be too costly; or
2. You live in Northern Ireland, Scotland, or Wales and have been denied treatments that were available in England.
