To ask the Secretary of State for Wales what is his estimate of the number of people suffering from cancer receiving care in their homes; and if he will make a statement.
§ Mr. Gwilym Jones
This information is not available centrally.
One of the major strategic aims of the NHS in Wales is to bring health care closer to a patient's home. Our emphasis is on health gain and we wish to see an increase in the quality of life for people with cancer. I am pleased that health authorities are addressing these issues.
