Cancer survival rates are at their highest, with more than half of those diagnosed living for at least 10 years. Even with some excellent cancer services in England, more needs to be done to improve cancer care, survival rates and patient experience. The Cancer Vanguard was established to pilot and roll out new models of care that will provide innovative high quality cancer care across the whole patient pathway.
The National Cancer Strategy
The National Cancer Strategy, Achieving World-Class Cancer Outcomes, was published in 2015 and included 96 recommendations to help transform the care that the NHS delivers for all those affected by cancer. The Cancer Vanguard has been tasked with contributing to the delivery of some of the key outcomes of the National Cancer Strategy.
The Cancer Vanguard is a partnership led by: The Christie NHS Foundation Trust, The Royal Marsden NHS Foundation Trust, and University College London Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust. It works across a population of 10.7 million people, which provides an unprecedented opportunity to transform and create new models of cancer care that can be reproduced nationally.
