The report looks back at how the cancer team has supported the ongoing delivery of the Five Year Forward View, the National Cancer Strategy recommendations and our partners across London in 2016/17.
Some of the team’s achievements last year include:
- Delivering a comprehensive baseline capacity and demand position for diagnostic services across London. This also identified potential for optimisation and forecast position in 2020 for four diagnostic modalities.
- Publication of commissioning guidance for lymphoedema services which includes mapping of specialist services in London, a service specification and business case. The guidance has influenced both national and regional stakeholders.
In the upcoming year we will continue to develop our workstreams to support and achieve the vision of making sure all Londoners have access to world class care before and after a cancer diagnosis.
