We are committed to improving outcomes for all cancer patients, including those with pancreatic cancer. On 12 January, we published “Improving Outcomes: A Strategy for Cancer” which sets out how we intend to tackle preventable cancer incidence, improve the quality and efficiency of cancer services and deliver outcomes that are comparable with the best in Europe. The strategy sets out an ambition to save an additional 5,000 lives every year by 2014-15 through earlier diagnosis of cancer and improved access to screening and radiotherapy.

Departmental officials have had informal discussions with Pancreatic Cancer UK about the Study for Survival report.
