Achieving World-class Cancer Outcomes: A Strategy for England 2015-2020

Source: Cancer Research UK

From Press Release:

Six strategic priorities have...been recommended by the Independent Cancer Taskforce to help the NHS achieve world-class cancer outcomes.

The cancer report outlines how an additional 30,000 patients every year could survive cancer for 10 years or more by 2020. Of these, around 11,000 would be through earlier diagnosis.

The plan, which aims to make substantial improvements in cancer care in England, comes at a time when cancer cases are increasing. 280,000 people were diagnosed with cancer in England in 2013/14 and this is expected to reach more than 300,000 by 2020, and more than 360,000 by 2030. One in two people will develop cancer at some point in their lives.

With survival rates also increasing each year, more people are living with cancer. The report sets out proposals for how patient experience can be transformed both during and after treatment.
