Be Clear on Cancer shelving defies progress

The government has decided to end its Be Clear on Cancer lung cancer awareness campaign. This campaign has helped raise awareness about common symptoms of lung cancer which may otherwise have gone ignored, for example a persistent cough.

Prof. Stephen Spiro has written a post for the BLF blog calling on the government to reinstate the campaign.

Unbelievable...I thought it had been proved that more lung cancer cases had been diagnosed earlier when the campaign started.

Then on Sunday it was announced that cancer should be diagnosed within four weeks....where is the reasoning.

Does the Department of Health fund the adverts, and the NHS the cancer care?

Are the stroke adverts and " blood in the wee" ones going to be axed as well?
