Cancer survival increase in Wales better than elsewhere in UK, says report

Wales has the biggest increase in cancer survival rates in the UK, latest figures have shown.

A report into the Welsh government's cancer strategy also said newly diagnosed patients started treatment within the target time of 31 days.

It found the proportion of patients surviving for at least a year after cancer was up by 14% in a decade.

But the report highlighted that Wales still had not met the levels of a number of other European countries.

Cancer survivor Steve Evans, from Brackla, Bridgend, tells Wales Today his cancer survival story.
