    Our focus on the earlier diagnosis of cancer is driven by national and local priorities to reduce cancers diagnosed in emergency settings, improve survival rates and reduce costly specialist treatment of late stage cancers.

On 1 April 2020 the North Central and East London Cancer Alliance became two organisations – the North Central London Cancer Alliance and the North East London Cancer Alliance. Both organisations continue to work in close collaboration with hospital trusts, GPs, health service commissioners, local authorities and patients to improve early cancer diagnosis, outcomes and care for patients in these parts of London.

Creating two organisations means that the work of each can be better linked to local needs, working with the respective Sustainability and Transformation Partnerships – North London Partners in Health and Care and East London Health & Care Partnership, and the local integrated care systems.

New websites are in development for both new Cancer Alliances and these webpages will be closed in the near future.

 

COVID-19 – Information for clinicians working in cancer care

While the NHS responds to COVID-19, many clinical services will be delivered differently. It is important that there are robust processes in place for prioritising patients with the most urgent needs, including the diagnosis and treatment of cancer. 

We are also ensuring that the best possible measures are implemented to protect patients and staff from infection, and from the risks associated with cancer treatment in people who have contracted COVID-19. 

Guidelines for cancer referral, diagnosis and treatment in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic are being developed by NHS organisations and professional bodies such as the Royal Colleges.  These will be updated on an ongoing basis as the pandemic evolves. 

To ensure that clinicians in the north London area have access to the latest information, the North Central London Cancer Alliance is making these guidelines and other relevant documents available in a central shared repository. These can be accessed here using your NHS email address.
