Living With and Beyond Cancer: Taking Action to Improve Outcomes

Guidance on improving quality of life for cancer survivors.



This publication aims to support commissioners, commissioning support units and providers to take the necessary actions to improve cancer survivorship outcomes.

  • structured holistic needs assessment and care planning
  • treatment summaries
  • patient education and support events (Health and Wellbeing Clinics)
  • advice about, and access to, schemes that support people to undertake physical activity and healthy weight management
