Prime Minister David Cameron is today set to announce a £400 million cancer package to boost research and treatment for cancer patients across the country.
As part of the investment in the Cancer Drugs Fund thousands more patients in England will get the life-extending cancer drugs their doctors recommend.
When I became Prime Minister three years ago many patients with rare cancers were being denied life saving treatments. That is why we created the Cancer Drugs Fund, it is why we are extending it, and it is why we are partnering with Cancer Research UK to conduct new research into the effectiveness of cancer drugs. It is only because we have protected health spending that we can afford these life saving treatments.
