Bridget demands faster breast cancer referrals for Islington women

2 December, 2009 at 8:22 am Leave a comment

Bridget Fox, Islington South and Finsbury’s Shadow MP, has called on the Government to ensure Islington women are screened and seen quicker when at risk from breast cancer. Shocking figures show that here in Islington, fewer than 4 out of every 10 women who are referred for potential breast cancer are seen by a specialist within 2 weeks.

Bridget said:

“Two weeks’ delay for a woman with late-diagnosed breast cancer could mean the difference between life and death.

Doctors and nurses do an amazing job, yet local women are losing out. The Government has tied up our NHS in red tape instead of helping frontline services deliver. They have let Islington down.”

In Islington South & Finsbury

Bar chart: it's Lib Dem or Labour here

The Conservatives, Greens and UKIP can't win in Islington South. Voting for them will just help Labour to win again. Only the Lib Dems can beat Labour in our area.
