Cancer patients in London receive some of the worst care in the country, according to patient surveys.

Nine NHS trusts in the capital came bottom of a nationwide table based on feedback from cancer patients.

Carol Fenton of Macmillan Cancer Support says one patient received a letter to say they were in the last weeks of their life.

Chris Rogers spoke about the findings to Pamela Wilson, a cancer patient, Kate Williams, a clinical nurse specialist at Queen's Hospital, and Prof Kathy Pritchard-Jones, the chief medical officer at London Cancer.
