NHS England is committed to rolling out a new Faster Diagnosis Standard by 2020 to ensure that patients referred for an investigation with a suspicion of cancer are diagnosed or have cancer ruled out within 28 days. National Health Service trusts were able to begin using the new pathways from April 2018 and all will be expected to be using them from April 2019. NHS England committed more than £200 million in cancer services over the next two years, to accelerate diagnosis and enhance quality of life.
