Gillian is serving as the Vice-Chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Radiotherapy who are working to provide an effective voice for radiotherapy and improve access to radiotherapy for cancer patients, ensuring no-one had to travel more than 45 minutes to their nearest radiotherapy unit. To ensure radiotherapy receives increased funding so that patients are allowed to have the best radiotherapy for their individual cancer. .
Currently 60% of people with cancer will need radiotherapy treatment. Gillian has been calling for St Richard’s Hospital in Chichester to be equipped with a radiotherapy unit as many of her constituents are travelling significant distances to receive treatment, typically either Brighton or Portsmouth.
