Greater Manchester (GM) Cancer is the cancer programme of Greater Manchester’s devolved health and social care system. GM Cancer has a broad focus, from prevention and early diagnosis to living with and beyond cancer and end of life care. The programme includes, among other things, the work of the Pathway Boards that were set up through Manchester Cancer and the work taking place in the Greater Manchester as part of the national cancer vanguard.
Cancer survival rates in Manchester are improving. A cancer patient diagnosed here today has the same chance of surviving as the average for England as a whole. However, there remains a lot of work to do to give the people of Greater Manchester cancer services that match the best in the world. This is the first time that health and social care organisations have come together across a whole region to develop an action plan to tackle cancer.
GM Cancer is taking a new and exciting approach to cancer intelligence, providing a much-needed service for Greater Manchester and East Cheshire. We are developing a programme to enable cancer outcomes and performance data to be routinely measured, analysed and accessed by all in Greater Manchester and East Cheshire who are involved in the provision and delivery of cancer care.
To implement our GM Cancer Plan and the overall vision for the Partnership it is imperative that effective access to data and intelligence is in place within GM Cancer around this transformation.
