    An advocacy group says a new report into cancer medicines doesn't go far enough for patients

    An advocacy group says a new report into cancer medicines doesn't go far enough for patients


    A Cancer Control Agency report has found 18 individual medicines funded across the Tasman, but not here.

    Patient Voice Aotearoa chair Malcolm Mulholland says the gap is much larger than the report shows.

    He says it's disappointing it's taken a government agency this long to recognise so little.

    He says people are resorting to givealittle to pay for the drugs - and re-mortgaging their homes.
