The Department is investing an additional £50 million in 2022/23 to increase the cancer and diagnostics workforce. This will contribute to the expansion of postgraduate medical training for cancer-related medical professions, such as pathologists and histopathologists, clinical radiologists and oncologists. Individual budgets for each specialty will be determined by Health Education England’s business planning in due course.
