During the COVID-19 pandemic, NHS England and NHS Improvement have ensured that National Health Service providers have sufficient funding for all services, including cancer, offering a guaranteed minimum level of income. In addition, recommendations have been made about expanding the list of COVID-19-friendly cancer treatments and extending the period of access until the end of this financial year, which the NHS has agreed to fund and is expected to cost in the region of £100 million.
