The Transforming Cancer Follow Up Team,NI Cancer Network / Public Health Agency
The Transforming Cancer Follow-Up team have radically transformed breast cancer follow-up across Northern Ireland by implementing self-directed aftercare pathways.
Their adoption and roll out of the Macmillan Recovery Package has been applied to 35% of patients post breast cancer treatment. All these improvements have created a foundation of greater patient empowerment and patient-centred care.
The team also worked to develop a survivorship website that allows people to search local services. As a result, patients can now benefit from more physical exercise programmes, complimentary therapies and financial advice at home.
If you have any questions about this team's work please email Macmillan Development Manager Paula Kealey.
The Primary Care Palliative Care Team,NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde
Every single person affected by cancer in Glasgow now has access to a district nurse trained by four Macmillan nurse facilitators – thanks to this team.
People of the city are now guaranteed access to the high quality support, no matter what part of the community they’re from.
But as well as collaborating with the Scottish government in redesigning the end of life pathways, the Primary Care Palliative Care team are also supporting the new Macmillan and Glasgow life project entitled ‘Improving the cancer journey’.

The Devon Macmillan GP Facilitator Team,North East and West Devon CCG and Torbay and South Devon CCG
For the past three years, the team’s key aim has been to give people the practical support they need at the end of life.
Their work has been shown to reduce hospital admissions.
Also, they’ve created influential partnerships across health and social care. In these partnerships they’ve developed and established tools to aid the delivery of the best end of life care to patients in their chosen care setting.
What’s more, the team’s work has concentrated on early cancer diagnosis and survivorship innovations which bring together primary and secondary cancer care cross the South West.
