I want cancer survival rates in Southend West to match the best in Europe

Macmillan is calling for the next government to take action to improve cancer outcomes. Currently, according to the Eurocare-5 study, the one year cancer survival rate for England is 68%, meaning 1 in 3 people with cancer die within a year of diagnosis. The best one year survival rate in Europe is 81% in Sweden.
I’m helping 5.300 ( the number living with and beyond cancer up to 20 years after diagnosis in NHS Southend CCG) people in Southend by prioritisng cancer care.
