A very important report has just been published that will shape the delivery of cancer services for years to come. There are over 90 recommendations and it will take time to digest them all For now I am picking out one:
Recommendation 62: NHS England should encourage all hospital providers to provide a directory of local services (electronic and on paper) and facilitate local cancer support groups (e.g. by providing free space), which can provide peer and signposting support to cancer patients being treated there. This should complement directories provided in general practice.
HNChelp greatly welcomes this and hopes our local trust will implement it and ensure all head and neck cancer patients are signposted to the support we can offer
