Cancer research endangered by NHS pressures

Daily pressures on the NHS are having a serious impact on the NHS’s ability to support world-leading research into cancer, according to a report from University of Birmingham.

The report shows how escalating pressures to deliver routine NHS services are squeezing out time for hospital staff to do vital research. It also highlights how financial pressures are affecting research infrastructure and the capacity of host organisations to fund additional research costs.
