Several patients were included in the Cancer wing at the hospital in the first four months of the year, and several of the sequences in the care were completed within the recommended time frame.

In the first four months of the year, 69% of the courses were completed within the standard time frame, while the proportion in the same period last year was 65.3%, according to new figures from the Ministry of Health and Health Services.

Minister of Health Bent Høie (H) believes this shows that hospitals have managed to give priority to cancer patients over a demanding period.

“These are results that make me proud and happy. Hospitals have managed to improve the outcomes of cancer treatment while preparing for the corona pandemic, he says.

Nearly half of the hospitals achieve the goal of 70% of patients completing the treatment in the recommended time frame.

A health care sequence is a standard procedure for the patient. The purpose is for cancer patients to experience well-organized, holistic, and predictable treatment without unnecessary delays that are not medically justified.
