Matt Case from Cancer Research UK said: "It's certainly good news that the survival of cancer has improved since 2001, we need to develop the rate of cancer leading to a faster rate if we are to go. engaging with other countries.

“The removal of early cancer is vitally important for developing life but the NHS is currently struggling to cope with a lack of permanent staff.

“The Government needs to invest more staff to detect and treat cancer, or the aim of giving 75% of cancer by 2028 is not achievable.”
