Service redesign

Macmillan supports system redesign to change the way cancer care is delivered. Current pathways can be disjointed, may not deliver the best outcomes and experience possible, and are not sustainable in a future where the number of people with cancer will increase from 2.5 million (2015) to 4 million by 2030.

We support the spectrum of service redesign from small tweaks to large-scale whole-system change.

Examples of some of the larger scale programmes that we support include:

Top tips for commissioners: Improving cancer services through primary care commissioning

In April 2015, new arrangements came into effect for commissioning primary care in England with many Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs) taking on greater commissioning responsibility for GP services in 2015/16.

Macmillan GP Advisers have collaborated with Macmillan’s Commissioning Support Programme to develop a new guide on how to improve cancer services across the pathway, through primary care commissioning, using local examples. It provides links to useful data sources, resources and further information on how Macmillan can support you.

Bespoke local support

Macmillan is working with health, social care and voluntary sector partners on Redesigning the System programmes to change the way cancer care is delivered.

Local Macmillan service development teams use evidence-based commissioning strategies, best practice and insight from across the UK to provide tailored local support to plan and design services with, and for, patients. Contact us to register your interest.

Macmillan has also embarked on a Local Authority Partnership Programme, in which we will invest to develop coproduced solutions and in building community capacity for local people.
