Prior to the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic, the Long-term Plan set out ambitious targets to improve cancer outcomes and services in England over the next ten years. Coronavirus has impacted cancer services, due to the pressure on the NHS and the need to shield vulnerable patients from exposure to coronavirus.
In spite of this, the NHS has had to continue to deliver care through cancer services, leading to difficult conversations about whether to treat or delay treatment for cancer patients.
Join us for the first HSJ Cancer Virtual Event on Wednesday, 24 June from 10:00 AM -1:15 PM BST for a very current and topical conversation on what is being done now in terms of creating covid-19-free cancer hubs and to address disrupted treatment pathways.
Register here to access the three panel sessions of the HSJ Cancer Virtual Event, taking place between 10:00 AM and 1:15 PM on Wednesday, 24 June.
