It is a cause for celebration that more people than ever are living longer after a cancer diagnosis, but we know the impact of cancer doesn’t suddenly stop when treatment is over and that many people have ongoing needs and long term side effects.
We are working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to help improve the experience of people living with and beyond cancer.
For everyone who has been diagnosed with cancer in North Devon to receive the Living With and Beyond Cancer model of care by 2020.
This is based on three elements which work together to provide support for health, social and individual needs:
- The recovery package
- Pathway stratification
- Supported self-management
