Due to the necessity for all our partners to focus on preparing and responding to the COVID-19 pandemic, elements of the current RM Partners cancer transformation programme will be paused, delayed or re-profiled to allow this urgent response to continue. Elements of the cancer programme will be accelerated to help support the whole NHS effort to ensure all patients receive the treatment and care they need during this time​.
