Threat to prostate cancer care again

Wednesday, April 4, 2012

Meg Munn MP recently met the Prostate Cancer Charity to hear more about the work being carried out to develop national standards for quality prostate cancer care. This disease is the most common cancer in men in the UK with 37,000 men being diagnosed every year, and 10,000 men dying.


Historically prostate cancer sufferers have suffered from a legacy of neglect of this disease. The delayed development of National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE) quality standards for prostate cancer, as well as recent decisions not to recommend new treatments for men at the end stages of the disease, threaten to leave prostate cancer behind once again. These decisions could lead to variations in the quality of care men receive both within England and across the UK. Men who suffer from cancer should have access to the same high quality care wherever they live.


The Prostate Cancer Charity has developed a draft set of standards that outline the best quality care that all men with prostate cancer need. The charity needs people affected by prostate cancer to tell them what they think and whether or not the draft standards highlight the aspects of care that matter most to men.


Meg commented:


“Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK - it’s essential we know exactly what people affected by the disease require from our health service. I urge anyone with direct or indirect experience of the disease to feed back on the Prostate Cancer Charity’s draft standards.”


If you or someone you know has experience of prostate cancer, please share your views by taking part in the charity’s survey at www.prostate-cancer.org.uk/qualitycare.
