Irish Cancer Society concerned detection rates affected by Covid disruption
It comes one day after the HSE signalled that services are recovering well in the wake of the pandemic
The Irish Cancer Society has expressed concern that service disruption under Covid-19 may have caused a drop in cancer detection.
It comes one day after the release of the HSE’s latest implementation report on the national cancer strategy, which signalled that services are recovering well in the wake of the pandemic.
Figures from the National Cancer Registry of Ireland show the number of cancers diagnosed dropped over the first two years of the pandemic.
