Executive Summary

Cancer services for Children and Young people will be delivered as a single and sustainable service across Scotland.

National multi-disciplinary team working is pivotal to delivering a single and sustainable service for Scotland.

Every child and young adult with cancer in Scotland will be enrolled into and treated on a clinical trial where one is available.

The MSN will review Care pathways to ensure that these deliver consistent, safe and effective care for all patients.

The MSN will develop outcome measures against which services can be evaluated.

The MSN will introduce an integrated and systematic approach to long term follow-up based on risk.

The MSN will develop services appropriate to the needs of teenagers and young adults up to age 25.

The MSN will introduce and support the development of the Framework for Palliative Care for Children and Young People.

The MSN will harness the experience of patients, and their parents or carers, to inform the shape of services for children and young people with cancer.

The MSN will ensure involvement of third sector partners in key decisions about services for children and young people with cancer.

The MSN will ensure equity of access to the best possible care and will strive to improve outcomes for children and young people with cancer in Scotland.
