Around 53,000 people in the Humber, Coast and Vale region are currently living with or beyond cancer. We are working together to improve the care and support people with cancer receive to enable them to be more in control and better able to cope with their treatment and recovery.
This programme of work is about support for people after treatment through the introduction of risk stratified follow-up pathways and embedding the recovery package:
- Holistic needs assessment and care planning
- Cancer Care Review
- Health and Wellbeing Support
- Treatment Summary
Cancer Care Review
Cancer Care Review packs provide information and tools for GP practices to support them in carrying out Cancer Care Reviews effectively.
The Cancer Care Review programme has been developed nationally with Macmillan Cancer Care and is part of a package of recommendations aimed at providing for World Class Cancer outcomes across the UK. We know that Cancer Care Reviews are being undertaken in primary care for the majority of cancer patients in our local area.
The toolkit which the Alliance have produced will help to support GP practices to ensure that the reviews they carry out with their patients are as effective as possible.
