Doubling Five-Year UK Lung Cancer Survival to 25% by 2025

The UK Lung Cancer Coalition (UKLCC) was set up in 2005 with the founding ambition of tackling poor survival outcomes and, specifically to double 5-year survival by 2015, which has now effectively been achieved (in England). The UKLCC is now calling for governments, commissioners and the health care community to re-double efforts and work together to raise 5-year rates to 25% by 2025 across the UK.
