Recovery and redesign: cancer services - action plan

In response to the pandemic, we have adapted to new circumstances in which cancer services continue to operate. The plan details actions that will both redesign cancer services to benefit patients, and increase our services’ overall resilience to future rises in COVID-19 prevalence.


An Errata was published on Tuesday 26th January 2021 as a result of amendments made on PDF pages 18 and 27. On page 18, the action #12 in Table 2 has been updated to reflect the timeline outlined in the written description of action #12 on pages 14-15. This amendment shows that an oversight group for the Early Cancer Diagnostic Centres will be established before the end of December 2020. Additionally, at least two pilot sites will be established by June 2021.

Furthermore, an amendment to the workforce statistics on PDF page 27 was made to reflect more recent statistics and to outline the specific timelines which they refer to. The amendment indicates the statistics refer to the increase in workforce from September 2006 until September 2020. The percent increase for consultant oncologists was 89.6% and 54.4% for consultant radiologists.

The pdf and html have both been updated within the document to reflect these changes.
