The organisation-specific per capita information requested is not held centrally.

On 27 September the Government announced a £200 million programme of spending to replace MRI machines, CT scanners and breast screening equipment across the country. The equipment will improve the quality of screening and speed of diagnosis and is part of the Government’s commitment to ensure 55,000 more people survive cancer each year. Recipients of this funding will be confirmed in due course.
