Spinwatch Your guide to the week's pre-election hype

Pulse;4/23/2005, Vol. 65 Issue 16, p7
The article reports that under a new Labour Government, all women with suspected breast cancer can expect a maximum two-week wait to see a consultant by 2008. Seeking to woo women voters, British Prime Minister Tony Blair hailed the success of the National Cancer Plan, claiming 33,000 lives have been saved by his party's policies. The Prime Minister also made two further pledges to cut waits for bowel cancer screening to two weeks and for smear results to be turned around in just seven days. Cancer charities reacted with cautious optimism. Jeremy Hughes, chief executive of Breakthrough Breast Cancer, said the promise was a "light at the end of the tunnel" for thousands of women.
