Submission to Health and Social Care Committee inquiry

We would urge the Rapid Diagnostic Centres to urgently publish new guidance on how to support screening and testing for common cancers including lung cancer outside of the hospital setting and, in the home, where possible, especially for vulnerable populations. This should be coupled with annual targets for each common cancer to ensure progress to the 75% early cancer diagnosis target by 2028 set out in the NHS Long Term Plan.
