An anal­y­sis pub­lished in the Sun­day Times found that be­tween April and Septem­ber this year each of the nine NHS cancer tar­gets re­ported the low­est pro­por­tion of pa­tients be­ing treated in time since the stan­dards were first in­tro­duced a decade ago.

In to­tal, the tar­gets were missed 168,390 times be­tween April and Septem­ber this year, it added.
