Cancer Team Collaboration Initiative of the Year

Effective cancer care is not possible without cross functional team working.

Healthcare providers, patient associations, charities, non-governmental agencies and pharmaceutical companies share a common agenda to improve patient care outcomes through high-quality, cost-effective treatment and management.

This award recognises outstanding collaborative teamwork in developing programmes that raise standards of patient care, treatment or cancer management and have the potential to be replicated across the NHS, e.g. cancer care in the community, cross disease management with cancer as primary disease, management of paediatric cancer care, etc.

Entries will demonstrate joint development and implementation of patient-centred initiatives showing a shared commitment to successful delivery. Projects can be at a local or national level.
