Cancer Transformation Team
The Macmillan Cancer Transformation Programme is working closely with specialists at the hospital to change the way people in West Norfolk receive their treatment.
Improving survivial rates which will allow patients to enjoy a greater quality of life is the key aim of the Transformation Team.
Making treatment pathways easier to navigate for patients and their families is also part of the programme along with looking at prevention, diagnosis and treatment along with End of Life care.
The plan is aligned to the Cancer Stratergies for the East of England Cancer Care Alliance, and both Cambridgeshire & Peterborough and Norfolk and Waveney Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships (STPs).
The Programme has funding until Summer 2020 thanks to Macmillan Cancer Support and was the result of a Visioning Day, which brought together The Queen Elizabeth Hospital, West Norfolk Clinical Commissioning Group and Norfolk Community Health and Care in January 2016.
