Commenting on the Health Secretary’s announcement about new national cancer treatment guidelines, Scottish Labour’s Shadow Health Secretary, Monica Lennon MSP, said:

“Breast cancer patients and their families have been badly let down, so this decision to overhaul cancer treatment and guidance is welcome. There should never be a postcode lottery when it comes to receiving cancer treatment in Scotland.

“Ensuring consistency of treatment across Scotland will provide some much needed reassurance to women receiving treatment in Tayside now and in the future.

“It’s now up to Jeane Freeman to get a grip on the deep-rooted challenges facing NHS Tayside and make sure that the recommendations of this report are implemented quickly and in full – as well as providing the necessary resources to make this happen.”
