“Doctors and the NHS are focussed, rightly, on trying to cure cancer and prolong the lives of those of us diagnosed with this increasingly prevalent disease. They have been very successful. More and more of us are living longer and longer but many with a quality of life compromised by the very treatments that have kept us alive. It is the intention of the proposed Cancer Centre at Colchester Hospital to both help rationalise the provision of cancer treatments and, especially, improve the quality of life of cancer survivors – something the NHS did not have to cope with when cancer was a quick killer.”

Sir John Ashworth,
Chair, Wivenhoe Group
