Detail

This strategy ‘Improving Outcomes’, sets out how – in cancer care – we will change health and care services to improve results for all cancer patients and achieve our specific aim of improving cancer survival rates. Through the approaches in this strategy, we aim to save an additional 5,000 lives every year by 2014/15 and to narrow the inequalities gap at the same time.
