The Independent Cancer Taskforce has published Achieving world-class cancer outcomes: a strategy for England 2015-2020. This report sets out recommendations for a new cancer strategy for England. An Executive Summary and launch press release are also available.

The Chair of the Taskforce, Harpal Kumar, sets out the opportunities to transform cancer services in a letter to the Chief Executives of the bodies responsible for running the NHS, and on the Cancer Research UK blog (link is external).

Achieving world-class cancer outcomes: a strategy for England 2015-2020 was informed by responses to a Call for Evidence, the summary of which is published here. Nearly 100 workshops and meetings were held, involving around 600 participants, the proactive involvement of patients, consultation with around 30 cancer charities, and professional groups. An Equality Impact Assessment was conducted on the recommendations contained within the report.

The report builds on the statement of intent, published in March 2015, which assessed the opportunity for improved cancer care, set out the key questions for the taskforce to address and outlined the key ambitions and initiatives to be considered.
