Cancer Patient's Journey Aims

The diagnosis, treatment and experience of cancer patients has changed significantly in recent years.

The objective of the Calman-Hine Report was to restructure cancer services in order to deliver a uniform standard of high quality care at three levels; Primary Care, designated Cancer Units and Cancer Centres.

The Cancer Reform Strategy has targets for preventing cancer, diagnosing cancer earlier and better treatment.

Improving Outcomes Guidance, published by the Department of Health, provides best practice on referral, investigations, diagnosis and the best treatments that patients should be offered for specific types of cancer.
