People with cancer will die as a result of having to wait for care while delays will leave other patients less likely to improve after treatment, researchers say. The authors of a new study say their findings are the first to quantify the number of people whose surgery did not happen because hospitals were too busy treating Covid patients. They found that in total 1,568,664 operations fewer than expected went ahead in England and Wales during 2020 and predict that the total will soar to 2.4million by the end of this year – Guardian
