Lancashire and South Cumbria Cancer Alliance
Cancer is a priority area for the Lancashire and South Cumbria Integrated Care System (ICS) which is called Healthier Lancashire and South Cumbria.
We aspire to improve cancer clinical outcomes for the 1.7 million people of Lancashire and South Cumbria.
What is the Cancer Alliance?
Cancer Alliances have been established to provide leadership by bringing together those who make decisions about services and those who deliver those services to work together to transform cancer services and improve outcomes for patients. The Lancashire and South Cumbria Cancer Alliance is one of 19 cancer alliances across England.
The Cancer Alliance for Lancashire and South Cumbria was established in September 2016.
The Cancer Alliance Board membership includes representation from hospital trusts, clinical commissioning groups, specialised commissioning, public health and national cancer charities across Lancashire and South Cumbria.
The Cancer Alliance has established a core team who support the Cancer Alliance Board and drive the implementation of the Cancer Alliance Delivery Plan and programme of transformation.
Lancashire and South Cumbria Cancer Delivery Plan
The Lancashire and South Cumbria Cancer Alliance has a delivery plan covering the period 2017-2019 which includes five workstreams designed to make its aims a reality.
The main objective of the Cancer Assembly is to provide updates to staff and our patient support groups who may not work directly with the Cancer Alliance and to hear your voice. Your views and opinions are very important to us including staff in both primary and secondary care who support cancer services including our medical secretaries, MDT Coordinators, outpatient booking teams, Practice Nurses, Practice Managers and patients working in support groups or with our Patient Voices team.
