Abstract: George Osborne has announced an increase in the state pension age to 66 for both men and women by 2020 (HM Treasury, 2010). It seems we will all be living longer with work in the future, and so too with cancer. Improvements in screening, earlier intervention and more effective treatments mean that cancer survival rates are increasing, particularly for common cancers. In a comparative study of breast cancer survival across 30 European countries, only Iceland saw an overall decline in mortality between 1989 and 2006 (45%) greater than in England and Wales (35%) (Autier et al, 2010). Scotland ranked fourth (30%) and Northern Ireland fifth (29%).
