Following Government confirmation of additional NHS funding earlier this year, NHS England is working on a plan for how it invests the money to improve healthcare over the next decade.
To support its planning, NHS England asked the public to have its say on how they can improve care for patients. We believe this is a great opportunity for the NHS to listen to patients and make changes that will genuinely improve the lives of people living with cancer.
Did you complete NHS England's survey on the long-term plan?
Shortly after submitting your response, the NHS will have emailed you a copy of your survey answers.
We plan to use the responses in our work with NHS England. Please forward the email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Macmillan also responded to the call for evidence by providing NHS England with a detailed list of actions we believe must be taken to ensure the needs of people living with cancer are met. Our key priorities include, fully personalised care for everyone living with cancer, tackling inequalities and growing a skilled and agile workforce. Read Macmillan’s priorities for the NHS long-term plan.
Macmillan’s latest report, One Size Doesn’t Fit All: Why we need to make cancer care in the NHS more personal, reflects on the experiences of people living with cancer while being diagnosed and treated in the NHS today. It also sets out our priorities to ensure the NHS long-term plan meets the changing needs of people living with cancer.
