NHS England has agreed to increase the annual Cancer Drugs Fund by 40%.
This is a recognition of the need to enable cancer patients to access new and innovative therapies.
The letter from the CEO of NHS England to the Chair of the Cancer Drugs Fund is on the NHS website. england.nhs.uk/ news article dates 28 August 2014.
I hope that some of the lobbying by CLLSA patients in the UK has contributed to this decision. There is much more to do.
