Who we are

Greater Manchester Cancer Alliance is one of 21 Cancer Alliances across NHS England, and the Cancer Programme of the Greater Manchester Health and Social Care Partnership.

Our aims

We want more people than ever to reduce their risk of developing cancer. For those diagnosed, we want to improve survival outcomes and experiences through earlier diagnosis, better treatment and supporting people to live well with and beyond cancer.

Working together

Our Cancer Alliance brings together clinical and managerial leaders from all hospital trusts and other health and social care organisations from across the entire region, alongside user involvement representatives and other partners. Working in partnership enables care to be effectively planned across all parts of our cancer pathways.

We also collaborate with the thriving research bodies in Greater Manchester, including The Manchester Cancer Research Centre, The CRUK Manchester Institute, The University of Manchester and other renowned clinical partners such as The Christie NHS Foundation Trust. By bringing together world-class researchers, clinicians and operational delivery, we have a unique opportunity to improve the lives of people affected by cancer in our region.

Greater Manchester Cancer Alliance is overseen by the Greater Manchester Cancer Board, which brings together healthcare professionals and people affected by cancer from across the region. You can find out more about the Greater Manchester Cancer Board below.
