The trusts in line to receive £200m for upgrading cancer screening equipment from the government have been announced.

Seventy-eight hospital trusts will share funds for upgrades over the rest of this financial year and 2020-21, the Department of Health and Social Care announced this morning.

The list of providers (see below) comprises over half the acute trusts in the English NHS.

The government first announced the £200m last month but did not reveal which trusts would receive the money.

The news comes one month after a study showed Britain bottom of a league table of developed nations for cancer outcomes.

Health and social care secretary Matt Hancock said: “It’s mission critical that the technology our NHS uses to prevent and diagnose cancer is bought into the 21st century.”

The NHS long-term plan aims to have 75 per cent of cancer patients diagnosed at stages one or two by 2028, increasing the chance of successful treatment.

Last month, Cancer Research UK warned a lack of government action on staffing would make hitting the 75 per cent target unlikely.

Reacting to the commitment of the £200m last month, Royal College of Radiologists president Jeanette Dickson welcomed the money but added: “To improve cancer detection and cancer treatment we don‘t just need more scans, we desperately need more expert imaging doctors to interpret them.

“Higher scanner throughput may require more support staff to look after patients before, during and after their procedure. Without doubt it will increase the need for more radiology staff to interpret increased scan output from the new equipment. With a tenth of radiologist jobs unfilled, and a scan outsourcing spend of nearly £140m last year, English hospitals are already desperate for more radiologists.”

HSJ National Cancer Forum

The HSJ National Cancer Forum takes place on 18 March 2020 at the Park Plaza Victoria in London. Taking place over one day, the forum will bring together the cancer community to discuss national policy and how to deliver the long-term plan at a local level. The event is free to attend for the relevant audience from the NHS. By attending you will gain clarity on and hear analysis of national policy from those responsible for shaping it, and understand how to implement it in your area. You will also explore the future of cancer care, and the innovations along the whole pathway.
