New cancer clinic ‘cuts waiting times by 92%’

14 January 2020 – BBC News

Data has found that a centre for quickly diagnosing cancer has reduced waiting times by up to 92% in its first year and cut costs as well.

Patients going to GPs with non-specific but possibly cancerous symptoms were sent to a rapid diagnosis centre at Neath Port Talbot Hospital.

As a result, Swansea Bay University Health Board said waiting times were cut to less than six days.
