Cancer Support UK has been quoted in several newspapers recently.

Here is an extract from the Northern Telegraph and links to other newspapers:

Cancer Support UK, which provides practical and emotional help for people with cancer, said the survey showed post-treatment support options needed to be “urgently addressed”.

Chief executive Gemma Holding said: “Inequalities in health and well-being provision across the UK mean that some patients - based on where they live - have better access to, and receive higher quality health care than others. “We know that when people’s official treatment ends, rather than feeling better, this is often when people can feel at their worst. “However, once physical treatment ends, cancer patients are often discharged with no support to manage the ongoing emotional challenges.
“Psychological support for people with cancer is essential to recovery, during and after treatment.”
