While creating capacity for Covid-19 patients was crucial to deal with the initial outbreak, it has slowed down the effective diagnosis and treatment of cancer across the UK. Coping with the pandemic has meant that routine screenings, urgent referrals, and treatments have been delayed or canceled, leading to a huge backlog of patients requiring care. The impact statistics are staggering with urgent cancer referrals down 60%.1 Cancer Research UK states that since lockdown started, around 2 million fewer tests that help diagnose cancer have taken place.
