The 78 trusts will receive funding for new machines that will improve patient experience and lead to earlier cancer diagnosis

Last month the Prime Minister announced the extra £200 million in funding for new cancer screening equipment. The chosen 78 trusts will receive funding over the next 2 years to replace, refurbish and upgrade CT and MRI scanners, breast screening imaging and assessment equipment.
Replacing and upgrading machines will improve efficiency by: Making them easier to use; Being quicker to scan and construct images; Reducing the need to re-scan.
Each trust has been allocated funding for new machines based on an assessment of local infrastructure and local population need. They will all contribute to the NHS Long Term Plan’s goal of catching three-quarters of all cancers earlier when they are easier to treat.

Health and Social Care Secretary Matt Hancock said:

“This new state-of-the-art equipment for 78 trusts across England will ensure doctors and clinicians can help even more people survive a cancer diagnosis and stop the disease as early as possible.

“It’s mission-critical that the technology our NHS uses to prevent and diagnose cancer is brought into the 21st century. We have backed the roll-out of these new machines with £200 million in funding, as part of our Long Term Plan, backed by an extra £33.9 billion a year.”

Cally Palmer, National Cancer Director at NHS England, said:

“Cancer survival is at a record high thanks to better prevention, earlier diagnosis and world-leading treatments in the NHS.

“This major investment in the best modern scanning technology will benefit patients in every part of England, helping us to achieve the NHS Long Term Plan’s ambitions of catching tens of thousands more cancers earlier when they are easier to treat, saving 55,000 more lives every year.”
