Britain faces the prospect of up to 35,000 additional deaths in the next 12 months due to delays in the diagnosis and treatment of cancer, caused by a coronavirus epidemic, studies show.
According to a study conducted by Data-may, medical research centres (HDRS UK) cancer, up to two million routine breast, bowel and cervical cancer screenings could be skipped for Covid-19 crisis.
The researchers examined data from eight hospital trusts in the simulation results depending on how long the delays continue.
Sharing the results of work with “Panorama” bi-Bi-si, the researchers warn that in the worst case, you may see more than 35,000 people die from cancer by this time next year.
Data-a leading academic, Professor mark Lawler, told the programme: “Anecdotally, people are saying we had problems, but I think the crucial moment was able to have the current data from hospital trusts.”
National clinical Director of the NHS in England from cancer, Peter Johnson, said that the organization seeks to restore cancer services to a normal level as quickly as possible.
He spoke about the program: “we are working as fast as we can deliver services together again to restore the capacity and indeed to build more so that we can communicate with people who have not been diagnosed in a time when service was below 100%.
“I hope that we will be back to where we should be by the end of the year.”
– Bi-bi-si “Panorama” in the UK Cancer crisis opens on Monday 6 July at 7.30 PM at the bi-Bi-si one.
