Our two alliance footprints for the North and South, converged to form a single alliance, the East of England Cancer Alliance, on 1st April 2024. The single alliance covers all six Integrated Care Systems in the East of England region. This evolution formalises the way of working that has been in existence since March 2020, at the commencement of the pandemic. 

This change brings us in line with other alliances across the country and provides an opportunity to build on the existing foundation, as the alliance, together with our partners, continue to support and make improvements for cancer patients across the region.

Also, as part of the change programme ‘Creating the new NHS England’ all Cancer Alliances, hosted by NHS England, transferred their hosting arrangements either to an NHS Integrated Care System or a provider organisation. 

The East of England Cancer Alliances (North Alliance; Cambridgeshire & Peterborough; Norfolk & Waveney and Suffolk & North East Essex and South Alliance; Bedfordshire, Luton & Milton Keynes, Hertfordshire & West Essex and Mid & South Essex) transferred from NHS England to Cambridgeshire & Peterborough Integrated Care System (CPICS) on 1 April 2024.
