Cancer is the biggest area of private healthcare spend in the UK.
Undoubtedly, cancer remains the biggest area of spend in private healthcare and, according to our Clinical Support Team, this is set to continue.
Recent statistics reveal that 1 in 2 people born after 1960 in the UK will be diagnosed with some form of cancer in their lifetime with adults aged 50-74 accounting for more than half of all new cancer cases in the UK. This, coupled with changing age profiles in the UK, where it is estimated that by 2020 30% of workers will be over 50, suggests that employers are more likely than ever to encounter an employee with cancer.
We have put together a white paper on ‘Cancer Treatment: Market Trends and Medical Update’ to discuss the ground-breaking advances being made in the cancer field, resulting in unprecedented survival rates.
