We believe everyone with secondary (metastatic) breast cancer has the right to the care they need to help them manage this incurable condition. An important part of this is care given by specialist nurses in their hospital.
However, three quarters (76%) of hospitals say there is not enough specialist nursing care for people with incurable secondary breast cancer in their hospital. This means thousands of people with incurable breast cancer are not getting the care and support they need to live well with the disease for as long as possible.
That’s why we’re campaigning for change. We’re calling on Clinical Commissioning Groups and Health Boards to make sure specialist nursing care is available for all patients with incurable breast cancer.
We need your help to make this happen. Act today and email your local Clinical Commisioning Group or Health Board.
Our map shows each Hospital Trust in England and whether they are recording the number of people diagnosed with secondary breast cancer. This is important as without full data, it is difficult for hospitals to plan their services to meet their patients’ needs. Click on the pink button to explore the map.
