Wanganui Chronicle cancer target correction

On Saturday 28 November, the Wanganui Chronicle incorrectly reported that "only one in five Whanganui cancer patients is getting treatment within two months of a referral after diagnosis" .

Thank you to the Chronicle for the correction published today (1 December 2015) stating correctly that “four or five patients a month are not receiving treatment as quickly as we would want.”

Although this is four or five patients too many, the correction reflects the situation fairly and accurately.
