Personalised care is fundamental to delivering better quality care that is meaningful to the individual, supporting improvements in health and wellbeing. This will also help to empower people to manage their care and the impact of their cancer. Everyone is different and will have different concerns when they are diagnosed with cancer; therefore we need to ensure that patients are treated as people and they have the opportunity to discuss all of their concerns, whether during a hospital appointment or with their GP, and get the support they need.
The map shows what patients should be offered throughout their pathway to ensure they receive personalised care.
Therefore our Personalised Care Programme will be supporting and driving forward the quality delivery of this pathway that should be available for all patients diagnosed with cancer.
