S5W-04052: Donald Cameron (Highlands and Islands)

Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party

Date lodged: 26 October 2016

To ask the Scottish Government what its response is to the findings and recommendations in the United Kingdom Lung Cancer Coalition’s report, 25 by 25: a ten-year strategy to improve lung cancer survival rates.

Answered by: Shona Robison 8 November 2016

The Scottish Government shares the United Kingdom Lung Cancer Coalitions (UKLCC) ambition to raise five year survival rates for lung cancer to 25% by 2025.

Our ‘Beating Cancer: Ambition and Action’ strategy and the accompanying
£100 million investment over 5 years, serves as a blueprint for the future of cancer services in Scotland, improving the prevention, detection, diagnosis, treatment and aftercare of people affected by all cancers.
