The Northern Cancer Alliance works with our communities, hospitals, general practices, local authorities, charities and other support organisations across the whole of the Integrated Care System in the North East and North Cumbria.
Together we collaborate to detect cancer as early as possible, improve results for patients, provide the best possible patient experience, and improve people’s quality of life across the North East and North Cumbria.
We focus on making sure that people in our region can get the same high standard of care wherever they live and whatever their circumstances and background. Ensuring that patients and the public are involved in all parts of our work is at the heart of what we do to improve cancer services in our region.
