Improving cancer services

In the South region a programme board has been established, chaired by medical director Nigel Acheson, which is focused on improving operational cancer performance (meeting cancer waiting time standards), and supporting a new cancer strategy which will set the direction for the future.

In advance of the strategy, an independent Cancer Taskforce have published a report which will form the basis of NHS England’s cancer strategy.

There is also information available on the progress of the cancer programme board and other cancer related developments across the region, such as the Thames Valley Cancer Audit.
