The General Election announcement took a lot of people by surprise. Soon, usual parliamentary business will be on hold as MPs switch from being sitting members to candidates and return to their constituencies to campaign.

Since the publication of England’s Cancer Strategy in 2015 there has been encouraging news for cancer patients. More funding has been announced for diagnostics and new radiotherapy machines. And new cancer alliances have been introduced to improve care on a regional level. But there’s still a lot more progress to be made.
