Improving Manchester's Cancer Care


The £3.45 million Macmillan Cancer Improvement Partnership in Manchester is bringing together all cancer care providers in the city to improve the experience of everybody affected by the disease at every stage of the cancer journey.

Macmillan is working in partnership with the three Manchester Clinical Commissioning Groups, people affected by cancer, GPs, NHS Hospital Trusts (including ours), St Ann's Hospice and Manchester City Council.

The vision is that everyone in Manchester who is affected by cancer will be able to say, "I had the best treatment and the support from an expert team who made me feel cared for and in control."

A funding agreement to commit a further £1.1 million to the MCIP has been approved by Macmillan after the successful launch of Phase 1 of the MCIP.

The first £2.35 million phase is focused on improving primary, community, palliative and end of life care.

The second phase is now underway to devise and implement plans to improve outcomes for breast and lung cancer patients in Manchester.
