As part of the Programme Communications and Stakeholder Engagement Strategy the programme team is keen on keeping the stakeholders in the system well informed on the latest developments. We will do this by sending brief updates systematically to all those involved in delivering the best possible care in cancer services within the Alliance footprint.
The programme this week has:
- Discussed with NHSE/I the additional information needed to agree the HCV Cancer Alliance Individual Funding Agreement 2018/19 by 30 April 2018
- Welcomed Rita Trewartha to the programme team Rita will enhance the delivery capacity of the HCV Cancer Alliance. Rita will lead the Awareness and Early Diagnosis Work stream. In particular, on the production of the HCV FIT Roll Out Business Case, Lung Health Check Programme, Cancer Champions and Primary Care Education
