Scottish Cancer Taskforce

The Scottish Cancer Taskforce (SCT) oversees the actions outlined within Better Cancer Care, An Action Plan. Progress made in delivering the commitments set out in Better Cancer Care was published in Better Cancer Care Progress Report 2010.

The progress report also identified a number of areas where further work was needed. These areas are set out in the Scottish Cancer Taskforce's workplan and are reported against at each SCT meeting.

Taskforce membership includes representatives from Cancer Area Networks, NHS Chief Executives' Group, NHS Directors of Nursing Group, NHS Information Services Division and from the voluntary sector.

Minutes from SCT meetings

Once approved by the Group, minutes are made available online. Minutes from earlier meetings are available on request:

Please note that there is a delay in publishing action notes, since notes taken from a meeting must be formally agreed by the group at the subsequent meeting before they become a public document.
