Question to the Department of Health and Social Care:

What steps he is taking to increase the rate of early cancer diagnosis.

Answered by Matt Hancock - Secretary of State for Health and Social Care

We have committed within the NHS Long Term Plan to have 75% of cancers diagnosed within the first two stages. In September 2019 we announced funding of £200 million for new equipment to drive earlier diagnosis of cancer and improve survival.
