A Labour MP has criticised David Cameron and accused his government of "scrapping expert cancer networks".
Liz Kendall, who is Shadow Minister for Care, says that despite his commitment to extending the Cancer Drugs Fund, the Prime Minister is not offering the "quality of cancer care" to patients.
The reality is that David Cameron is letting down cancer patients.
He has scrapped expert cancer networks that drove huge improvements in the quality of cancer care.
A recent report for Cancer Research UK found NHS staff were worried that the Government's NHS reorganisation was fragmenting cancer services and stalling the dramatic improvements in cancer treatment seen over the last decade.
David Cameron should also stand up to the tobacco lobby rather than caving in to them over standardised cigarette packaging, which experts say would be a powerful weapon in the long-term fight against cancer.
