3 August 2001 News Update


Cancer drugs and non-surgical cancer services are to become free across the country. The change is one of the recommendations in a report to the Ministry of Health on improving cancer services.

The report, written by three specialist working parties, included radiation oncology, medical oncology and haematology. It also recommends the retention of six regional cancer centres for non-surgical treatment.

A working party made up from the three review groups will oversee a five-year plan to make the drugs and treatment free and accessible to people as close as practical to their home.
