     Introduction

    Currently more than 1 in 3 people in the UK will be affected by cancer at some point in their lifetime (Cancer Research UK). This number is predicted to rise to 1 in 2 people by 2020 but, as this number rises, so does the number of potential treatments for cancer and it is predicted by the time we reach this number almost 40% of patients affected by cancer will not die from it (Macmillan - Cured but at what cost?).

    In the UK, the outcomes for cancer are amongst the worst in Europe and one of the reasons for this is diagnosis at a late stage. The Government has made it a priority to improve these statistics and has committed to saving 5,000 lives from cancer by 2015.

    In Wandsworth Cancer is the leading cause of death for people aged under 75 and, whilst in other areas deaths from caner are going down, statistics show that in Wandsworth this number is rising.

    Wandsworth Clinical Commissioning Group is committed to achieving earlier diagnosis of cancer and improved outcomes for sufferers by:

    • Raising awareness of the early signs and symptoms of cancer
    • Improving the uptake of cancer screening among the local population
    • Working with local GP practices and hospitals to improve education, access to diagnostic tests and more streamlined referral processes for people with suspected cancer

    We hope you find this section of the website useful.  Currently it is in the early stages of development but we hope to build a good selection of useful resources and educational links. Please feel free to give us feedback and suggest anything you feel would be useful for us to include.
