Bowel cancer is the 4th most common cancer in the UK, accounting for 11% of all new cancer cases (CRUK).
The overall aim of the Colorectal SSG is to provide specialist advice and guidance to the Peninsula Cancer Alliance on the standards of service for patients with a colorectal cancer, and to ensure that these patients receive equitable and high quality care across the region.
Management of rectal cancers is provided in all five localities and all five local MDT’s have agreed on a video-linked monthly anal cancer MDT. This links all five colorectal cancer local MDT sites. The agreed centre is the Royal Devon and Exeter NHS Foundation Trust.
