March 13, 2018

SA Best Leader Nick Xenophon wants better services in SA for people with rare cancers.

Nick Xenophon wants more South Australians with rare cancers to have access to clinical trials.

If his party holds the balance of power after Saturday's election, the SA Best leader has pledged $5 million to extend trials by the Garvan Institute of Medical Research to SA, allowing approximately 430 patients to be treated in Adelaide instead of having to travel interstate.

"All South Australians with rare and less common cancers deserve to have access to clinical trials in Adelaide," Mr Xenophon said on Tuesday.
