People in poorer areas of England less likely to survive cancer, figures show

The Guardian, September 4, 2008

People living in the most deprived areas of England are less likely to survive cancer, according to government figures. Cancer patients in poor areas of the country have less chance of being alive five years after diagnosis, according to the national statistics office. Its study of National Health Service trusts in England found "significantly lower" survival rates for both men and women across a range of cancers in the 62 most deprived areas of the country.
