A record 2.7 million people were referred for cancer checks in the last year according to NHS England. It comes after a dramatic fall during the pandemic.BBC 1 News at 13:00 today 2nd May 2022
England has 10 times the population so all things being equal you’d expect around 270 000 referrals in Scotland but there were only around 50 000 in 2021. Even the USA with more than five times the population of England had only 1.8 million in 2020.
