People from black and minority
ethnic groups and those
from poorer backgrounds feel
they didn't receive
adequate care and support
while suffering from cancer.
A report by Macmillan Cancer Support
also found twice as many respondents
from black and minority
ethnic backgrounds felt
doctors talked to them
as if they weren't in the room,
compared to white patients.
Tolu Adeoye has been
finding out more.
I am here at a hospital in north
London, hundreds of cancer patients
are treated here every year. There
is a report by Macmillan then found
poorer people report worse
experiences. Chris, tell me more
about the details from this report.
The report highlights that for
people living with cancer in the
capital, they are saying things like
they don't feel like they are
getting enough care and support from
our health and social services. The
picture is similar for our ethnic
minority communities, they are
saying for example when they are
given the diagnosis the information
isn't always understandable so

to spend more time listening to the
needs and issues and also the assets
of our various communities,

and co-designing the solutions with
people living with cancer to address

The NHS England says the
majority of Londoners do have good
experiences but they say they
recognise some of the issues in the
report and they are working with
organisations like Macmillan to
improve cancer care for everybody.
The night overground
is coming to London
in less than a month.
There are already late night
services on parts of the underground
but from Friday 15th December,
Londoners will also be able
to travel between New Cross Gate
and Dalston Junction on Friday
and Saturday nights.
We think this will benefit two parts
of London's population, firstly
those involved in the night-time
economy so if you are involved in
the entertainment business and want
to get to and from work it will be
right for you. And those who work
early shifts on a Saturday or Sunday
morning, or late in the evening,
this will be for you.
Every year BBC London honours one
of the unsung heroes
of the capital's sporting community.
This year's winner has helped
thousands of children
and young people in Middlesex
at Bedfont Sports Club.
Dave Reader has raised millions
of pounds to improve their facility
in his 30 years with the club.

anniversary, but they aren't
the only ones celebrating this year.
Ted and Doris Box

They met at primary school
and married a few days before Ted

So what is the secret

Now the weather with Kate Kinsella.
It has been a predominantly cloudy
day so far with outbreaks of rowing,
it was quite a damp start of the
day. Light patchy rain, most of
which has disappeared but we will
hang on to this cloud. We hang onto
this mild air for the next few days.
Some of the cloud thick enough to
produce light rain and drizzle
through the afternoon, but
predominantly dry foremost. A bit of
a breeze developing, we hang onto
that overnight. It will be mild
overnight, the temperature not
really dropping. Some light rain
making its way from west to east. It
starts off grey but the temperature
not very cool, ten or 11 Celsius so
I'll start on Tuesday. For Tuesday,
quite a bit of cloud around but
brighter spells and glimmers of
sunshine, especially into the
afternoon. Predominantly cloudy but
the temperature is still my old. As
we head into Wednesday, we are
hanging onto this mild air, 15
Celsius in central London as a top
temperature, above-average for the
time of year. Potentially rain and a
mild night into Thursday, then we
might see the cloud break-up and
some glimmers of sunshine. It gets
cooler towards the end the week.
That's about it from me,
Riz Lateef will be here
with our 6:30 evening programme.
But for now, from us all,
a very good afternoon.
