There has been some media coverage in NSW this last day or so following Cancer Council reporting on problems patients experience when accessing radiotherapy The media stories, like this one, emphasise the challenges of travelling for treatment, amongst other things - In the course of doing media interviews, one journo told me that the government's response to our report was that in a few years, "90% of the population will live within 100kms of treatment". It made me wonder - does this mean it is ok for patients to travel 60, 80 or 100kms for treatment? And surely not all 100kms are equal? Won't some of these journeys still be harder and take longer for some? What does it mean to you to travel up to 100kms for treatment?
