The time it takes for cancer patients to be diagnosed and treated could be shortened as the measurement of waiting times has changed in Wales.
Waiting times are being measured from when a patient's cancer is first suspected, rather than from when the hospital receives their referral.
More than 74 per cent of people with cancer were treated within 62 days under the new Single Cancer Pathway, according to the Welsh Government.
An extra £3m a year is being provided by the Welsh Government to help roll out the change.
The two existing cancer waiting times are based on how the cancer is identified and puts people on either a 31-day pathway or a 62-day pathway.
In England, an 'urgent referral' means that you should see a specialist within two weeks. In Northern Ireland, the two week wait only applies if you are referred for suspected breast cancer.
This two week time limit does not currently exist in Wales or Scotland, according to Cancer Research UK.
Macmillian Cancer Support has welcomed the move.
