£7m will be invested in ground breaking initiatives that will improve lung cancer outcomes and increase early diagnosis in Yorkshire.

The investment is part of Yorkshire Cancer Research's strategy to ensure 2,000 more people living in the county survive cancer every year by 2025.

The announcement follows expert workshops held last year, which were attended by more than 100 influential and experienced leaders in early diagnosis, which is key to improving survival, and lung cancer, the region's leading cause of premature death.
