As part of the Programme Communications and Stakeholder Engagement Strategy the programme team is keen on keeping the stakeholders in the system well informed on the latest developments. We will do this by sending brief updates systematically to all those involved in delivering the best possible care in cancer services within the Alliance footprint.

The programme this week has:

  • Set up 2 additional Cancer Champions training days for February 2018
  • Organised a Diagnostics demand and capacity workshop which is scheduled for the 28th February 2018
  • Created a Cancer Care Review Pack (CCRP) by the Task and Finish Group
  • Met at the Lung Pathways Action Group on 2nd February 2018. We discussed the creation of a Tumour Site Clinical Group (TSCG) to implement the Optimal Lung Pathway within the HCV Cancer Alliance footprint. We also discussed potential reconfiguration of services and explored options with lead chest clinicians, radiologists and cancer managers from the three acute providers
  • Supported Public Health England (PHE) which is launching a national campaign to raise awareness of symptoms of breast cancer in women over 70 (please see leaflet enclosed)
  • Developed the first draft of the HCV Cancer Alliance Transformational Aspirations Report
  • Held our monthly Programme Executive meeting. We discussed and agreed allocation of projected underspends from delays in recruitment according to internal bids within the Alliance as well as support for Programme Delivery Boards and process to develop an HCV Cancer Alliance workforce strategy
  • Participated in the discussions at NHS England North Region Cancer Board to hold a cancer improvement event on 13/03/18 in 2 Brewery Wharf, Kendell Street, Leeds LS10 1JR. The event is aimed at Cancer Alliances and GM Cancer Vanguards
  • The aim of the event is to bring a wide range of stakeholders together to build energy for change and co-design an improvement programme that will create a platform to facilitate delivery of mutually identified priorities to bring about the following objectives:
    •  A combination of strong stakeholder engagement (formal & informal) to enable change
    • Renewed energy for change o Co-production of an outline plan that will be the framework to enable an improvement movement to happen
    • Agreement of identified short and long term outputs and mutual priorities

Please see enclosed slides. The HCV Cancer Alliance has 15 places allocated. If you want to participate please email PENNINGTON, Charlotte Pennington ([email protected]) before Friday 16th February 2018.
