Local cancer charity, Cancer Focus, launched its ‘manifesto’ at an event held last week.

Speaking at the ceremony, which took place at Stormont, Sinn Féin MLA Oliver McMullan welcomed calls by the charity for a fresh vision for combatting cancer.

He said: “With cancer waiting times worsening and the number of cases of cancer projected to rise considerably between now and 2035, it is time we had a fresh vision for combatting cancer.

“What we need is an over-arching all-Ireland strategy to fight cancer and deliver the best possible service for those in need.”
