Our vision

To offer local women a world-class gynaecological cancer service, that rivals the best systems internationally. To support women holistically in their care and treatment and to offer all women a full range of treatment options, choice of care plan and locality, as well as access to innovation and research taking place across the System.

Background

London Cancer brings together local GPs and all 12 of the area's secondary and tertiary care providers in a formal governance structure, which also harnesses the expertise of leading cancer academics and charities.

Our new partnership will focus cancer care on the needs of the patient in a way that has not been possible under the current model of care, which too often delivers a disjointed and fragmented experience.  It will also address the poorer cancer clinical outcomes in London, to eliminate the estimated 1000 avoidable deaths from cancer in the capital every year.

Comprehensive, seamless pathways of care across the system

London Cancer clinicians at local hospitals will work in partnership with GPs and colleagues from across the system to map out a comprehensive, seamless clinical pathway for every patient.  Patients will be diagnosed efficiently and have access to the best care and treatment the system can offer for treating their particular cancer, no matter where they live or first access care. 

The pathway director  for gynaecology and the pathway board will support providers to improve access to screening and diagnostics so that treatment can begin as soon as possible.  The pathway director will also drive the system towards international best practice so that all patients have access to the full range of care of a world-class system.
