Cancer crisis: a stark warning from Royal College of Radiologists

Cancer crisis: a stark warning from Royal College of Radiologists

Commenting on a warning from the Royal College of Radiologists on the workforce crisis at the heart of Welsh cancer care, Sam Rowlands MS, Welsh Conservative Shadow Health Minister said:

“The Royal College of Radiologists is right, Wales’ cancer crisis is worsening, with critical care shortages, diminishing outcomes and Labour Welsh Government inaction.

“Labour has run the health service in Wales for 25 years and they’re the only government to have ever cut a health budget, not once, not twice, but three times. As a result, barely half of cancer patients start receiving treatment within the target time.

“Only the Welsh Conservatives are offering a bold alternative, with a substantial workforce plan to boost recruitment and retention, including a tuition fee refund for radiologists, oncologists and all healthcare workers that stay and work in Wales after their studies.”
