Plain cigarette packaging should be introduced to help lower the amount of people dying from lung cancer, a leading health charity has said.
Macmillan Cancer Support made the renewed call for the reintroduction of the controversial policy, amid a Government review into the effectiveness of plain packaging.
Chief executive of Macmillan Cancer Support, Ciaran Devane said:
Lung cancer patients deserve better. It is high time we closed the gap between survival rates for different cancers and give everyone the best possible chance of recovery.
Firstly, we support the call for plain packaging of cigarettes to stop people taking up smoking, secondly we must catch the illness earlier through better awareness and we have to make sure access to surgery is more uniform across the country to reduce inequalities in cancer survival.
It cannot be right that you are much more likely to get the surgery you need if you live in Leicestershire than if you live in Lancashire.
