Stomach cancer survival rates up 20% with centralised treatment
Doctors say the proportion of people surviving surgery for cancers of the stomach and oesophagus has increased since centralising treatment at a single hospital.
Patients in south east Wales have been sent to Cardiff's University Hospital of Wales for surgery since 2010.
There is a 20% increase in patients surviving one year after treatment.
It is extending to patients in parts of mid and south west Wales.
