A cash pot used to pay for life-extending drugs for cancer patients is to be extended, the Prime Minister has announced.
The Cancer Drugs Fund, worth £200 million a year, was set up for patients in England to access drugs approved by doctors but which have not been given the go-ahead for widespread use on the NHS.
The aim of the fund was to make it easier for medics to prescribe treatments even if they have not yet been approved by the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (Nice).
David Cameron said that the funding programme will run for an extra two years to March 2016.
