Parties united in prostate cancer treatment suppport
The leaders of Britain’s three main political parties have come together to call for an improvement in the treatment of prostate cancer.

Tony Blair, Michael Howard and Charles Kennedy all issued statements supporting the Prostate Cancer Charter for Action. The recorded messages will be played at Thursday’s National Prostate Cancer Conference in London.

Other MPs and Lords have been invited to record their support for a national screening programme for the disease, which kills 10,000 men a year. The BBC’s John Humphreys is will also contribute a message.

The Prostate Cancer Charter for Action constitutes 22 charities including the prostate Cancer Charity and Cancer Research UK.

Campaigners say that men suffering from the condition receive poor treatment compared to other cancer patients. They are calling on the government to lead the way coordinating research into new treatments.

Prostate cancer patient Sandy Tyndale-Biscoe, speaking for the Prostate Cancer Charter for Action, said: "Much remains to be done and too many men with prostate cancer still get a poor deal.

"There is a historic opportunity to change this and we must make tackling prostate cancer a priority."
