Cancer has remained a priority for the National Health Service throughout the pandemic and the vast majority of services have been maintained. This will continue into the winter. Over the winter, we will aim to sustain the progress made and prepare for future challenges, while ensuring the NHS does not come under unsustainable pressure. Anyone experiencing potential symptoms of cancer should contact their general practitioner as soon as possible.
