The NHS has set out how it plans to return essential cancer services to pre-COVID-19 levels in a new plan. The Cancer Recovery Plan outlines actions to:-
- restore demand for endoscopy services to at least pre-pandemic levels
- reduce the number of people waiting longer than they should for diagnostics and/or treatment, set by the NHS, at least to pre-pandemic levels on both screening and symptomatic pathways
- ensure sufficient capacity to manage future increased demand, including for follow-up care
