GM Cancer Recovery Package Workshop: Taking Stock and Looking Forward

This event, which was fully funded by Macmillan Cancer Support, took place on 5th December 2018. Over 40 professionals from across Greater Manchester came together to consider issues around the implementation of the Recovery Package for all patients. Themes included:

  • taking stock of progress so far
  • looking at priorities for 2019
  • considering barriers to achieving full implementation, and
  • devising solutions to overcome these
  • making links with the Prehab4Cancer programme

Representatives from Macmillan Cancer Support were attendance, as was Lesley Smith, the LWBC Senior Programme Manager at NHS England. The slides of the presentations given by all speakers are now available here:
