Cancer Drugs Fund ‘should be managed better’, say MPs

A special NHS fund for cancer medicines in England needs to be managed more effectively, says a committee of MPs.

In its report on the Cancer Drugs Fund, the Public Accounts Committee said it was unacceptable that the benefit to patients was still not clear.

The fund was set up in 2010 to improve access to cancer drugs that would not be routinely available on the NHS.

The fund, which is expected to have cost £1.27bn by April 2017, has helped more than 80,000 cancer patients.
