September 2019 Breakfast
The news that Milton Keynes University Hospital’s dedicated cancer centre will open its doors in December will come as a welcome relief to the 4,000 residents of the city who are diagnosed with the disease each year. Despite an increase in the number of people who survive cancer, the UK is still falling behind other high-income countries, and the announcement of this analysis was released on the same day that MK Hospital Chair, Simon Lloyd, updated Milton Keynes Business Leaders (MKBLP) on the new cancer centre.
