Cancer services

Inquiry

This inquiry will ask why cancer outcomes in England continue to lag behind comparable countries internationally and examine evidence relating to the underlying causes of these differences.

We will also consider what impact disruption to cancer services during the covid-19 pandemic will have on efforts to catch up, and ask whether the ambitions set out in the NHS Long Term Plan will help close the gap with the best performing countries worldwide.
