Leading cancer charity Cancer Focus Northern Ireland is calling on the people of Mid-Ulster to pledge their support for equal access to cancer drugs for patients in a new campaign.

Cancer Focus NI has launched the three month campaign with the support of 14 local charities.

The campaign aims to secure 10,000 pledges of support via email, letters and postcards which will be delivered to Health Minister Edwin Poots at Stormont this autumn.

There are currently 38 cancer drugs available to patients in England that are not readily available to patients in Mid-Ulster. Anyone who would like to pledge their support for equality of access for local patients should visit www.equalaccessni.org.
