The workstream aims to:
  • Adapt and improve our services to ensure the 50% of people now surviving cancer receive the best possible support
  • Ensure those people who are diagnosed with treatable but incurable cancer have appropriate support to both live and die as well as possible
  • Help the people who are surviving cancer to cope with the physical, emotional and financial effects of a cancer diagnosis and treatment
  • Support people affected by cancer to continue their recovery in the most appropriate setting
  • Improve communication between health professionals, people affected by cancer and their community so that care is co-ordinated and focussed on their needs.
