Local MP shines a light on radiotherapy, the unsung hero of cancer treatment

Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, met with NHS providers and patients at a briefing held in Parliament to learn about radiotherapy and the benefits it can bring to cancer patients.

Justin said:

“Radiotherapy is a cost-effective and cutting-edge treatment that forms a core part of the health care regime for many cancer patients. Last year, more than 130,000 people with cancer in England had radiotherapy as part of their treatment.

“Although radiotherapy technology has rapidly advanced and investment has been made in replacing outdated machines throughout the UK, there is still variation in patient access across the country. Recent investment in new machines for the NHS is welcome, however further investment is essential to address the demand for this life-changing treatment.”
