Consequences of Cancer and its Treatment Community of Influence (CCaT)
More and more people are being successfully treated for cancer – at last count there were about 2 million cancer survivors in the United Kingdom and this figure is growing. However research has shown that the needs of some people after treatment are not currently being met.

The Consequences of Cancer and its Treatment Collaborative (CCaT) was created in 2009, as a ‘community of influence’, supported by Macmillan, to improve the experience and outcomes of people living with and beyond cancer. CCaT has a collective voice influencing healthcare policy, practice and research aimed at addressing the physical, psychological and social consequences of cancer and its treatment. CCaT is made up of eleven senior research-active nurses and one physiotherapist, from England and Scotland, all of whom have credibility as leaders and innovators in practice, research and education.
This video describes our work and the influence we aim to have.
What we do
CCaT members, individually and jointly, are engaged in a range of initiatives to improve the care of people who have been treated for cancer, through service development, education, research and evaluation.
Since CCaT was set up, members have worked with colleagues locally and nationally to influence care for people living with the consequences of cancer and its treatment.
Key activities include:
