About our Network

The East of England Clinical Network for Cancer has a vision to improve quality of life and outcomes for patients by driving out unacceptable variation in pathways of care; reducing inequality of access to all aspects of care, and redesigning the way we work with primary care.

Our Strategic Aims are to:

  • Support the design and set up of the Cancer Alliances and delivery of their work programme
  • Support the design, set up and delivery of Clinical Advisory Groups into the Cancer Alliance
  • Support the service to meet the 62 day waiting times standard, including the new 28 day to confirmation of diagnosis standard 
  • Support pilots of the Multidisciplinary Diagnosis Centres with the aim of diagnosing cancers earlier
  • Support the service in the roll out of the Recovery Package 
  • Support work across whole pathways of care (e.g. the lung cancer pathway) to improve patient experience and outcomes, and enable more effective use of the budgets available 
  • Support the Cancer Alliance in ensuring coordinated care between health and social care in the delivery of palliative and end of life care (for all patients with long term conditions)
