Our Vision

Transforming cancer services to deliver better outcomes for patients in the East of England

About Us

Cancer Alliances bring together clinical and other senior leaders clinicians, patients and other leaders 
locally across a defined geography to:

  • plan for and lead the delivery of the Independent Cancer Taskforce’s ambitions locally; and
  • reduce variation in outcomes and in access to high quality, evidence-based interventions across whole pathways and for the Alliance’s whole population.

The East of England Cancer Alliance is 1 of 16 Cancer Alliances and 1 Vanguard across England and is geographically the largest Alliance footprint with a population of 6.3 million, spanning 6 STPs, 21 CCGs, 20 acute trusts.

We lead the local delivery of the Independent Cancer Taskforce’s ambitions for improving services, care and outcomes for everyone with cancer. So, by 2020:

  • Fewer people will get preventable cancers.
  • More people will survive for longer after a diagnosis.
  • More people will have a positive experience of care.
  • More people will have a better, long-term quality of life.

These are NHS England's values

  • Respect & dignity
  • Commitment to quality of care
  • Compassion
  • Improving lives
  • Working together for patients
  • Everyone counts

Shaping excellence in cancer care - prevention and access to high quality cancer services across the East of England
