Macmillan’s new policy report ‘Thinking Differently: Macmillan’s vision for the future cancer workforce in England’ emphasises the urgent need to address the challenges facing the cancer workforce and outlines five ways in which we believe that the cancer workforce can be strengthened.

The report also reinstates the case for a strategic review of the cancer workforce, as recommended in the Cancer Strategy for England, and calls for greater strategic leadership on workforce from national bodies.

  • At last. Sounds as if Macmillan is going on the campaign trail, and following all the feisty members of US cancer charities. For a long time cancer patients have realised that the NHS is dumbing down cancer services, and survivors have lonely battles to fight to get what we are entitled to - let alone have services similar to those provided in Europe. So tell us what you are doing, and what us supporters can do to ram home the message, so that we improve survival figures.
