The aims of the Independent Cancer Taskforce were to produce a step change in cancer outcomes in England whilst placing patient experience at the centre of the way cancer services are developed.
The East of England Cancer Alliance and its constituent STPs have a unique opportunity to redesign cancer pathways to focus on:
- identifying and treating early stage disease,
- improving one year survival,
- reflecting an equal ambition to improve outcomes in advanced and poor prognosis tumours,
- improving patient experience and optimising performance.
All the Alliance work programmes are targeted to these ambitions.
