Cancer: Children

Volume 480: debated on Thursday 16 October 2008

To ask the Secretary of State for Health what childhood cancer centres there are in England; and how many (a) patients under treatment, (b) consultant medical staff and (c) clinical nurse specialists there are at each. (226143)

The Department does not collect this data centrally.

With regard to staff, it is for local employers to work in partnership with cancer networks, strategic health authorities, national health service trusts and post graduate deaneries to put in place a sustainable process to access, plan and review their workforce needs against local and national priorities for cancer.
