    Cancer treatment targets not being met

    The Evening Times reports on the worsening cancer treatment crisis in Scotland:

    HEALTH bosses are struggling to meet some targets for cancer treatment waiting times in Scotland.

    Half of men with prostate cancer - one of the most common types - are waiting two months or more to start treatment and waiting times for breast cancer treatment have increased.

    Some types of cancer are being treated faster but for others, between a quarter and a third of patients given an urgent referral are still waiting for treatment two months later and, in some instances, eight or nine months.
