Labour’s new study is based on freedom of information data from 95 English NHS Trust.
It shows that the longest waits for cancer treatment have soared since 2010.
The longest one patient waited for treatment following a GP referral in 2017 was 541 days - against a target of 62 days.
The patient was treated at the Royal Devon & Exeter NHS Foundation Trust.
The data also revealed 66% of trusts who replied had at least one cancer patient forced to wait over six months to start treatment, and 69% had a worse longest wait than in 2010.
