The Living with and Beyond Cancer workstream will work collaboratively across the whole Alliance to ensure the people of Lancashire and South Cumbria are fully supported living with and beyond cancer and that their holistic needs are suitably met. We will work to ensure all eligible cancer patients have access to elements of the recovery package at the right time for the patient. The recovery package elements are:
• Holistic Needs Assessment (HNA) and a written individualised care and support plan
• A treatment summary completed at the end of every phase of acute treatment sent to the patient and their GP
• GP Cancer Care Review (CCR) to discuss ongoing needs
• Access to patient education and or relevant health & wellbeing support/events
Follow up care will be managed through risk stratification and will support patients to self- manage their care with confidence and offer the ability of robust re-entry pathways back into secondary care if required.
