Our key partners for the East of England Cancer Alliance can be found below, with links through to their sites. These partners include our six integrated care boards.

Norfolk and Waveney Integrated Care Board

A partnership of local health and care organisations working together to improve the health, wellbeing and care of people living in Norfolk and Waveney.

The organisation includes local GP practices, hospitals, community care, social services and mental health teams; providing services to more than a million people.

By 2030 we predict the population of Norfolk and Waveney will have risen to 1,094,000 and the largest increase will be in the over 75s - in 2030 there will be over 57,000 more people aged 75 and over living locally compared with 2015. All of this means that how we look after ourselves, and how health and care services work together to care for people, also needs to change.
