We need rethink on cancer treatments in Derbyshire

This year, in the UK, there will be around 160,000 deaths of people diagnosed with cancer.

Overwhelmingly these are people who took the standard government advice before and during their illness. with regard to cancer prevention and treatment.

The lowest valid estimate as to the cost of this in total to the UK is in excess of £100,000 each, over £16 billion each year and rising.

Is there any specific reason why in Derbyshire, safe, effective, inexpensive treatments directed towards the cancer patient are being rejected in favour of colossally expensive, useless and usually lethal treatments directed towards the cancerous tumour?
