APPGC - Cancer Across the Domains
The APPGC’s Cancer Across the Domains project has been looking at the new NHS architecture and asking if the reforms have led to better cancer care and services.
Cancer across the Domains report launched
At the Britain Against Cancer conference on Tuesday 10 December, John Baron MP, Chair of the All Parliamentary Group on Cancer, launched the Group's new report Cancer across the Domains.
The report makes a number of recommendations to NHS England on how to improve cancer care and services across the new NHS structure.

About the Domains
NHS England, the new body responsible for overseeing NHS services is divided into five ‘Domains’. These include:
Preventing people dying prematurely
Enhancing quality of life for people with long term conditions
Helping people to recover from episodes of ill health or injury
Ensuring that people have a positive experience of care
Treating and caring for people in a safe environment
The APPGC has been investigating what needs to be done to ensure that cancer is embedded across all five of these Domains. This is founded in the belief that all Domains have a role to play in improving the outcomes and experiences of cancer patients.
We held three roundtables in parliament with a range of stakeholders, alongside a public consultation asking the cancer community what they think the cancer priorities for NHS England should be. Thank you to everyone who responded to the consultation, we will now be considering the submissions and the outcomes from the meetings.
The work will culminate in a report with recommendations for NHS England, which will be launched at our Britain Against Cancer Conference in December.
