Cancer Services spans across all Care Groups within the Trust, providing an oversight of cancer care and helping teams to work together to deliver the cancer strategy. We also work to support operational teams to provide timely, quality care for patients with cancer.

As well as supporting the implementation of the Trust’s Cancer Strategy, Dr Khanduri and Jessica are responsible for meeting the National Cancer Peer Review requirements and responding to the National Cancer Patient Experience survey results.

The cancer performance and data team are responsible for the day to day management of the pathway co-ordinators and 2 week wait referral team.  They are responsible for ensuring patients are seen within national targets through robust tracking and adherence to the cancer escalation policy.
