Every person, including teenagers and young adults diagnosed with cancer, has the right to the best possible care, treatment and expert support. As the number of young people with cancer continues to rise, it’s vital the NHS workforce is able to keep pace with this increase as well as to continue to drive developments in age-appropriate care. Teenage Cancer Trust believes that providing a highly competent and supported nursing workforce will have a direct effect on the quality of patient care young people receive.
As a member of the ‘One Cancer Voice’ coalition, we are asking the Government to ensure that at the upcoming autumn Spending Review on the 27th October, they commit to urgently investing in the cancer workforce to ensure we have a sustainable, specialist workforce that meets the needs of every person diagnosed with cancer, including every teenager and young adult, wherever they live.
You can support our calls by signing this Parliamentary Petition calling on the Government to invest urgently in the NHS cancer workforce in the autumn Spending Review.
