Living With and Beyond Cancer
There are two million people living with or beyond cancer in the UK. This figure is set to rise to four million in 2030
It's a cause for celebration that more people than ever are surviving after a cancer diagnosis but we know the impact of cancer doesn't suddenly stop when treatment is over.
We are working in partnership with Macmillan Cancer Support to help improve the experience of people living with and beyond cancer.
The Macmillan Living With And Beyond Cancer Programme is specifically looking at breast, bowel and prostate cancer services.
We want everyone who is diagnosed with breast, bowel or prostate cancer to live well after a diagnosis. this means:
- Getting your care in a way and place that works for you;
- Care and support designed around you and those close to you;
- Support to manage your recovery yourself.
We believe everyone should experience high quality cancer care and support.
