BBC Radio York – Julian discusses Cancer Treatment in York amid Coronavirus
October 8, 2020
Julian joined Steve Bailey on Afternoons on BBC Radio York to discuss cancer referrals during the COVID-19 pandemic and how late diagnosis impacts treatment outcomes.
This follows my question in the House of Commons on Tuesday where I questioned the Health Secretary Matt Hancock on assisting York Hospital NHS Trust to make sure the local fall in cancer referrals at the height of the pandemic does not produce a backlog
Julian was also joined by Julie Russell, General Manager of York Against Cancer, who is also concerned as her organisation has seen a drop in patients seeking their services. York Against Cancer have recently put out the following piece outlining why patients should still go to their GP if they have any health worries: https://www.yorkagainstcancer.org.uk/news/seek-help-if-you-need-it
