Living With & Beyond Cancer
With an ageing population more people are being diagnosed with cancer in the UK and people are surviving a cancer diagnosis due to earlier detection and improved treatments. People are now Living With and Beyond Cancer therefore it is vital that support continues during and after treatment.
The National Initiative to improve outcomes for people Living With and Beyond Cancer has seen the introduction of a Macmillan Recovery Package Project team within the Trust. The project will roll out a series of key interventions which, when delivered together, can greatly improve outcomes for people living with and beyond cancer
The Recovery Package was developed by Macmillan to support people so that they feel more in control of their illness and recovery which positively improves both physical and emotional health outcomes. It further helps self-confidence and overall improvement in health and wellbeing.
The Recovery Package is made up of a holistic needs assessment which creates a care plan, treatment summary, a cancer care review and a health and wellbeing information which includes education and support for every patient. It will provide a more integrated model of care, through a better coordinated approach between the hospital, the GP and the person with cancer.
