The Peninsula Cancer Alliance; working across Devon, Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly, is one of 21 cancer alliances across England, bringing together clinical and other senior leaders and patients.

We plan and lead locally to deliver the ambitions set out in the NHS long-term plan. Reduce variation in outcomes and improve access to high quality, evidence based interventions across whole pathways, and for the alliances whole population.
