A cancer charity is calling for urgent action to improve cancer care in London, after a recent survey painted a damning picture of hospitals in the capital.
Macmillan Cancer Care surveyed patients across England about their experience of different hospitals - and nine out of ten of the worst rated NHS Trusts were in London.
It is the third year running that London NHS Trusts have filled the majority of places in the bottom ten of Macmillan's league table.
