This document sets out the NHS Cancer Programme’s strategic approach to delivering faster diagnosis of cancer. It outlines specific and measurable objectives and key requirements for Cancer Alliances until the end of 2023/24, bringing together previously separate objectives relating to rapid diagnostic centres (RDCs) and Faster Diagnosis Standard (FDS) best practice timed pathways (BPTPs). It also seeks to align this work with related programmes such as the community diagnostic centres (CDC) programme.
