Humber, Coast and Vale Cancer Alliance brings together all the organisations that commission and provide cancer services in our area, enabling effective and co-ordinated partnership working to improve patient experience.

In 2015 an Independent Cancer Taskforce Strategy set out an ambitious vision for improving services, care and outcomes for everyone with cancer.

Humber, Coast and Vale is one of 19 cancer alliances set up across England, to work towards this vision.

Awareness & Early Diagnosis

The Alliance seeks to improve cancer survival rates by ensuring more people are diagnosed at an earlier stage; by improving cancer awareness and uptake of screening.


We are working to understand where the gaps in diagnostic capacity are and work with partners across the Alliance to develop strategic plans for radiology, pathology and endoscopy services.

Treatment & Pathways

The Alliance is implementing rapid diagnostic and assessment pathways for lung, prostate and colorectal cancers.

Living With & 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.
