Almost half of all lung cancer patients face unwelcome delays in their cancer care, a UK survey found. The survey, conducted by the UK Lung Cancer Coalition (UKLCC), polled over 400 lung cancer patients and their care providers. Although 95% of patients named prompt referral to a hospital as a priority, only 64% had received it, and 46% had experienced delays at some stage of their care. These findings are particularly concerning given the importance of timely treatment in improving lung cancer outcomes. In addition, 57% of respondents indicated that they had not received accurate information about their lung cancer diagnosis. Based on these results, the UKLCC has developed a series of suggestions for improving lung cancer care.
