NHSE Audit of Secondary Breast Cancer
NHS England is to fund the first national secondary breast cancer audit to produce accurate information about the numbers living with this disease. The audit will also give insight into the needs and experiences of people living with metastatic breast cancer and so help to ensure that the treatment and care programmes and services needed by patients become available in the necessary numbers and places. A series of features broadcast by the BBC on October 7th revealed that women with secondary breast cancer often feel overlooked and forgotten. The NHSE audit will provide vital information and help to increase awareness of the disease so that people with secondary breast cancer no longer feel ignored.
