Achieving World-Class Cancer Outcomes: One Year On 2015-16

The independent Cancer Taskforce set an ambitious task for the NHS: to make significant progress in reducing preventable cancers, increasing cancer survival and improving patient experience and quality of life by 2020.

In the first year of a five year programme to implement the cancer strategy we have made rapid progress in a number of key and high-impact areas. This includes working with colleagues across the country to establish the infrastructure and environment to deliver transformations in outcomes that will benefit all patients, regardless of their age or ethnicity, where they live or what type of cancer they have.
