Screening and Prevention
The Peninsula Cancer Alliance works collaboratively with Public Health England (PHE) around screening, prevention and early diagnosis and this includes a specific work-streams focused on reducing emergency cancer presentations.
The alliance is working closely with the national cancer team to learn from their experiences with the national lung health check programme and has funded local improvement projects to address delays in lung cancer diagnosis and treatments and to ensure access to appropriate care is timely and available. In addition, the PCA works with PHE on health awareness programmes that support the Be Clear on Cancer programmes.
