New blog post: What are the changes to the treatment break rule during the coronavirus pandemic?

The treatment break rule is NHS England's policy imposed on advanced bowel cancer drugs cetuximab and panitumumabk, where patients are not allowed to take planned breaks from treatment with these drugs for longer than six weeks.

Because of the covid-19 pandemic, the rule is currently suspended until 1st July 2021. Follow the link below to find out more about this rule and our campaign to have it permanently removed.
