Top doctor Nick Van As warns that “NHS England said they would get rid of the postcode lottery – now no one gets funded” Hundreds of cancer patients are being denied vital treatment under the Coalition’s NHS shake-up, two of the country’s leading cancer specialists warn today. The doctors have taken the rare step of publicly denouncing the “unmitigated failure” of health care funding under NHS England which was established in April to improve outcomes for patients.

Cancer patients are facing a postcode lottery of care within the NHS, with patients in some areas four times less likely to get an early diagnosis, it has been reported.
