Sinn Féin MLA Liz Kimmins has said latest figures released on cancer waiting times in the north once again reiterate the urgent need to implement the cancer strategy.

The party’s health spokesperson said: “Behind each one of these figures and statistics represent a family, a loved one waiting to be diagnosed with cancer.

“Cancer patients are experiencing traumatic and dire consequences as they wait for a diagnosis, and months and years pass.

“The cancer strategy must be implemented without delay to help tackle these waiting lists. Families cannot wait any longer.

“I will work with all parties and the Executive to tackle waiting lists, support patients and families and to ensure the cancer strategy is fit-for-purpose, appropriate and compassionate.”
