UK weighs putting "one-week key diagnostics access" into law

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

As the UK's mainstream media focus on government proposals to enshrine into law its pledges on elective surgery and cancer referral waits, other guarantees mooted today promise to go even further in improving access to medtech. A "right to key diagnostic tests for suspected cancer patients within one week of seeing a GP, with an interim milestone of two weeks" is among the targets put forward for future inclusion in the NHS Constitution, building on plans announced in September.
