Martyn Day, Shadow SNP Spokesperson for health and social care, said: “Cancer impacts so many lives directly and indirectly, and we will all have been touched by cancer in some way or another. Early diagnosis is one of the main reasons why more people are surviving cancer than ever before. It’s imperative that you contact your GP straight away if you’re worried about cancer.

“The NHS remains open for everyone, and you should not delay accessing any help you might need.”
