Macmillan and Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust have been working together for 20 years to improve cancer patient experience. There are now around 50 Macmillan professionals working at the Trust – including 27 clinical nurse specialists, as well as speech therapists, counsellors and a consultant in cancer rehabilitation.
In 2014, work began to develop a more strategic partnership between the two organisations, to build on the already excellent survival rates being delivered by Imperial College Healthcare, whilst responding to feedback gained from the National Cancer Patient Experience Survey that services could be improved by providing a more joined-up, compassionate and personalised level of care. This event forms part of our planning for the next phase of this joint programme.
