How we are run

We are accountable, through NHS England and NHS Improvement’s Cancer Programme in the South East, to the National Cancer Transformation Board.

Cancer Alliance Board

The Surrey and Sussex Cancer Alliance Board provides leadership to ensure that all patients with cancer in Surrey and Sussex receive equitable access to safe and effective care.

The Board is founded on the principle of co-design between providers, commissioners, clinicians and service users. It is made up of senior leaders from our local health and care system, charitable organisations and people affected by cancer.
