Ms Primarolo

To ask the Secretary of State for Health if she will make a statement on the training of doctors and medical students on cancer.

Dr. Mawhinney

Our aim is to ensure that patients receive high quality treatment from properly trained doctors. Cancer is a major cause of mortality and morbidity. The diagnosis and treatment of the many forms of cancer figure prominently at all stages of the education and training of our doctors, and will continue to do so.
