In recent weeks, George has been contacted by many constituents about NHS England’s consultation on a new model for radiotherapy services in England. He is concerned about reports of people potentially having to travel outside of Cornwall for treatment.
George wrote the above letter to Simon Stevens, Chief Executive, NHS England, to express those concerns. He has also spoken to the Kernow Clinical Commissioning Group.
This week, during Prime Minister’s Questions, the issue of radiotherapy services in Cornwall was raised. The Prime Minister encouraged people in Cornwall to respond to NHS England’s consultation.
