NHS Cancer Programme-Quarterly Report-With Some Familiar Faces!

The NHS Cancer Programme launched its quarter 3 report last week.  The report summarises key milestones from April 2020 up to the end of December, and it provides an update on the work of the NHS Cancer Programme.

The NHS Cancer Programme leads the delivery of the NHS Long Term Plan ambitions for cancer;

• By 2028, 55,000 more people each year will survive their cancer at least five years after diagnosis.
• By 2028, the proportion of patients diagnosed at stage one and two will rise from just over half to three quarters.

Leading change at the local level are Cancer Alliances, who work in collaboration with their local Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs) and Integrated Care Systems (ICSs).

Key Highlights to look out for in the report are:
