The RM Partners Medicines Optimisation group is working both locally and across London to address and implement the recommendations from the NHS England National Cancer Strategy, Achieving World-Class Cancer Outcomes, which was published in 2015 by the Independent Cancer Taskforce.
The taskforce looked at how cancer services are currently provided and set out a vision for what cancer patients should expect from the health service. The report included 96 recommendations to help transform the care that the NHS delivers for all those affected by cancer, including improving access to chemotherapy and systemic medicines for cancer, whilst improving the patient experience and reducing unwarranted variation through use of best practice.
