THIS EVENT IS CPD CERTIFIED
This seminar will bring together policymakers and stakeholders to discuss the next steps for cancer care in England - looking at funding and access, workforce targets and progress on service redesign and early diagnosis.
Delegates will discuss the findings from the 16 regional Cancer Alliances and their impact so far on the redesign of local cancer services, as well as the further steps that can be taken to ensure earlier and faster diagnosis, and the progress of the 28-day standard pilots.
Attendees will also assess the challenges for meeting workforce targets, following the publication of Health Education England’s Cancer Workforce Plan, which makes plans for 200 additional clinical endoscopists and 300 reporting radiographers by 2021.
Further sessions will discuss the new Cancer Drugs Fund (CDF), which is expected to release at least £140 million into the NHS over the next five years - as well as priorities for improving patient care and access to cancer medicines.
