Majority of Colchester cancer cases picked up early

Essex County Standard: Majority of Colchester cancer cases picked up early Majority of Colchester cancer cases picked up early

COLCHESTER residents are being given a strong chance of surviving cancer through early diagnosis despite last year's scandal, new figures reveal.

Experimental data from Public Health England reveals a postcode lottery of how often cancers are detected in their first or second stage.

Colchester borough residents are the sixth most likely to have their cancer picked up early, giving them a better chance of survival.

That happens in 58.9 per cent of cases, well above the national average of 42 per cent.

I notice the practice run for the Military festival flypast has occurred, to coincide with this press report.
The Flying Pink Pigs Squadron is airborne and the BullS**t is alive and well and on target.
If you honestly believe stuff like this then more fool.
It will take them years to recover good stats after the utter tripe that has been going on down there and is STILL GOING ON !
Propaganda? it is worse than Lord Haw-Haw or Mata Hari

Great to have some positive news about our hospital. Good to see them ahead of the game on this one.

Experimental data?
Nice try.
Won't fool any one.
Even Coutts falling on his sword can't save this god-forsaken hospital, it's rife with lies, malpractice & BS.
I've heard paramedics are requested to go elsewhere, anywhere but Colchester General.
