The Living With and Beyond programme was a partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to help improve the experience of people living with and beyond cancer in our region.
The programme specifically focused on breast, bowel and prostate cancer services with the aim to ensure everyone diagnosed with these cancers can live well after a diagnosis. This means:
- Getting care in a way and place that works for you
- Care and support designed around you and those close to you
- Support to manage your recovery yourself
The programme took a structured approach, and supported the local implementation of several components of personalised care and support in each of the localities, across breast, colorectal and prostate tumour sites.
The programme evaluation and executive summary report which you can view below were published in March 2021. The evaluation highlights the benefits to both people diagnosed with cancer and the region’s cancer care workforce, that came from the £5 million programme.
