Cancer Drugs Fund Usage
Baroness Delyth Morgan, Chief Executive of Breast Cancer Campaign, said: “We welcome the publication of this information, which we hope will drive greater, more equitable access to life-enhancing drugs via the Cancer Drugs Fund, regardless of which region people live in across England.
“It’s clear that this fund is benefitting many women with breast cancer, with a substantial number of applications made to access drugs that would otherwise have been unavailable. While this is encouraging, the Cancer Drugs Fund is only funded until 2014. We would like to see a firm commitment by the Government that women with breast cancer will be able to continue to access these life-enhancing drugs in future.”
