Breakthrough on government cancer wait

Maggie Alexander at Breakthrough Breast Cancer comments, "We welcome the commitment in the NHS Constitution that by April 2010 patients will have the legal right to see a cancer specialist within two weeks of being referred by their GP. We hope this will not further delay the Government’s prior commitment for a maximum two week wait for all breast cancer patients by the end of the year. Women tell us waiting for a diagnosis is extremely distressing regardless of the outcome and Breakthrough would like up-to-date information on how long all breast cancer patients are currently waiting."
