Prime Minister David Cameron visited cancer patients in Oxford today after extending a cash pot used to pay for life-extending drugs. The Cancer Drugs Fund, worth £200m a year, was set up for patients to access drugs approved by doctors but not been given the go-ahead for widespread use on the NHS.
The scheme was set to run until 2014. Mr Cameron spoke to reporters at the John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford and explained why the funding programme will run for an extra two years.
