There are two million people living with or beyond cancer in the UK. This number is increasing by around 3% each year. While many of these survivors have been successfully treated, a significant number have ongoing problems that affect their quality of life.
Macmillan believes that people living with or beyond cancer, and their carers, should have easy access to high-quality care, treatment and support to meet their medical, practical, emotional and financial needs for years after treatment. They should be respected and included as equal members of society and be able to take as active a role as they wish in their care and treatment.
We are working in partnership with the Department of Health in England to identify models of care and best practice for post teatment support for cancer patients, including assessment and care planning, post treatment support transition and supported self-management.
All these pilots are currently being evaluated to assess their effectiveness in improving the quality of life for people living with cancer.
