Norman Lamb listens to people affected by cancer

North Norfolk MP Norman Lamb has taken part in the Macmillan Question Time in Parliament with people affected by cancer. He heard first-hand about their experiences, and why the Government needs to prioritise improvements to cancer care.

The event was a chance for people affected by cancer to share their concerns and use their experiences to question a panel of politicians.

By attending this event, Norman Lamb MP is continuing his support for people affected by cancer both in North Norfolk and nationally to ensure that everyone receives the best standard of care possible.

Norman Lamb MP said “The debate at Macmillan Question Time highlighted the great progress we’ve made in cancer care, but also showed that more can be done to actively respond to and address the increasing needs of cancer patients.”

There are 2 million people living with cancer in England – with more than 6,700 in North Norfolk - and this number is growing every day.

As Care Minister I secured a commitment to deliver reform of our unfair care funding system. The reforms would have made sure people didn't have to sell their house in their lifetime to pay for care, and that far more people would get some financial help towards their care. The Tories have now said the reforms will not be introduced next year as planned. Will you sign my petition to demand they honour their commitment?
