The chair of NHS England’s cancer drugs fund has said there is likely to be more reviews of affordable treatments in future - and refused to rule out cutting more treatments from the fund.

Professor Peter Clark, a medical oncologist in Merseyside, said the current system for deciding which cancer treatments are available on the NHS is “broken - not logical, robust or rational”. 

As a result, it is likely that the treatments that are on the list will be reviewed again before the fund is set to end in 2016.
