Macmillan Cancer Improvement Partnership

The Macmillan Cancer Improvement Partnership in Manchester brings together cancer care services and their supporters to improve the experience of everybody affected by cancer.

Nine squares of different sizes are interlinked on the left. The words 'Together we are improving your cancer care' sit above the NHS and Macmillan Cancer Support, St Anne's Hospice and Manchester City Council logos.

Improving Manchester's cancer care

The partnership exists between Macmillan Cancer Support, the three Manchester Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs), people affected by cancer, GPs, NHS hospital trusts, St Ann’s Hospice and Manchester City Council. Together, we want to deliver a more effective and compassionate standard of care.

Our vision is that people in Manchester will be able to say they had the best support and treatment from an expert team who made them feel cared for and in control.
