- RM Partners Cancer Strategy for North West and South West London 2021-2025
The RM Partners Cancer Strategy 2021-2025 describes our long-term vision in how we will deliver more patients being diagnosed at an earlier stage and increasing survival following a diagnosis of cancer. The strategy has been developed with all our stakeholders, including the two integrated care systems that we cover (North West London and South West London) and aligns compatibly with their long-term strategic aims for us to deliver collaboratively comprehensive cancer care across each system.
- National Cancer Strategy
The NHS England National Cancer Strategy, Achieving World-Class Cancer Outcomes, was published in 2015 by the Independent Cancer Taskforce. The report set out a vision for what cancer patients should expect from the health service. Cally Palmer, National Cancer Director for England, launched a plan to make these changes a reality by 2020, including the establishment of 19 Cancer Alliances across the country to lead implementation of the strategy locally.
- NHS Long Term Plan
The NHS Long Term Plan, first published in January 2019, was developed in partnership with frontline health and care staff, patients and their families and other experts. It sets out ways that the NHS can achieve the ambitious improvements it wants to to see for patients over the next ten years.
- Pan London urgent referral forms: The Transforming Cancer Services Team has produced Pan-London Suspected Cancer Referral Forms. These replace the suspected cancer referral forms produced by the former cancer networks. The forms, educational resources and support information are available from Healthy London Partnership.
