In January 2019, NHS England published the Long Term Plan. The plan focuses on how the NHS will move to a new service model in which patients receive better support and joined-up care, at the right time and in the optimal care setting.
Cancer priorities in the NHS Long Term Plan are patient access to personalised care and support, stratified follow-up, and the introduction of a quality of life metric to track and respond to the long-term impact of cancer.
Personalised cancer care provides individuals with cancer with access to care and support that is tailored to meet their needs so that they can live as full, healthy and active a life as possible. The personalised care helps to manage any physical and psychosocial effects of cancer and its treatment, provide access to financial, emotional, practical and social support, and supports maintenance of a healthy lifestyle and self-management their condition. Rehabilitation has a key role in personalised cancer care throughout the pathway.
