Event Details

The NHS England Five Year Forward View advocates that every person should have access to four elements of the Recovery Package by 2020 including, Care Planning, Holistic Needs Assessments (HNA), Treatment Summary (Recommendation 65) and primary care Cancer Care Review. We have been successful in securing 5.5 million of Cancer transformation Funding to support us in delivery of the recovery package to our patient population for the next 2 years.

Transformation of the way we deliver care to those living with and beyond cancer is a necessity, rather than an aspiration, if we wish to:

  1. address currently unmet needs

  2. prepare people for living with cancer, its treatment and consequences

  3. optimise clinical outcomes.

 

At this event we aim to showcase examples of good practice across Somerset, Wiltshire, Avon and Gloucestershire in implementing the Recovery Package and Risk Stratified Pathways so as to support all our stakeholders in successful implementation.

There will also be presentations about the various elements of the Cancer Transformation Project:

  • The experience of Cancer Support Workers in practice;

  • Patient experience and involvement;

  • Psychological training programme;

  • Cancer Rehabilitation;

  • The role of Primary Care in supporting this patient group;

  • Our Patient Portal – a patient facing website to increase access for holistic needs assessments, support and encourage self-management and improve patient experience;

  • Somerset Cancer Registry/Infoflex – how our systems will support implementation.

 

Places are limited but we would ask that you invite influential members of your clinical teams who will be involved with implementing key aspects of the project such as the Recovery Package and Risk Stratified Pathways i.e. Clinical(Medical and Nursing) Leads from each of your designated cancer sites involved with the project. Priority places will be given to these people
