Baroness Delyth Morgan, Chief Executive at Breast Cancer Now, said:

“The Cancer Drugs Fund has already changed the lives of thousands of breast cancer patients across England and we’re delighted that it will continue to provide faster access to the most promising new cancer treatments for patients who desperately need access to new effective drugs.

“It’s fantastic that the introduction of the new Innovative Medicines Fund will now open the door for patients with other conditions to also benefit from quicker access to the newest treatments, while further data is collected.

“We will be reviewing the proposals thoroughly once published to ensure that the details guarantee all breast cancer patients will continue to benefit from it both today and in the future.”
