Valerie raises the Cancer Drugs Fund at Health Questions

On Tuesday 25 November 2014 at Health Question, Valerie raised the Cancer Drugs Fund.

Valerie Vaz asked:

“Will the Secretary of State publish the assessment of the Cancer Drugs Fund by the chemotherapy intelligence unit before 7 May 2015?”

The Secretary of State for Health replied:

“We are, on the NHS, the most transparent Government in history, and I can see no reason why we would not publish that. We are very proud of what the CDF has achieved. We are very proud that the level of cancer diagnoses has increased by more than 50% compared with what it was under the previous Labour Government, and so we are finally starting to win the battle against cancer.”
