Motion text

That this House recognises the achievements of the NHS in improving the number of patients accessing surgery for lung cancer by 60 per cent. from 3,276 operations in 2006 to 5,265 patients receiving an operation in 2010 and the impact this has on surviving the illness; notes the role of the Society for Cardiothoracic Surgery and the Royal College of Surgeons of England in changing training to produce a new specialism in lung cancer surgery; and calls on those trusts lagging behind to employ lung specialists and invest in training for minimally invasive techniques so even more patients may benefit from improved life expectancy.
