Cancer Research UK has set out an ambitious goal that three in four people diagnosed with cancer should survive that diagnosis by 2034. In order to achieve this ambition, our focus is on the early diagnosis of cancer because of the great potential for improvement in outcomes through diagnosing cancer earlier.
To help support our ambition our Health Professional Facilitators are the visible face of our work with the NHS. Our Facilitators work closely with Primary Care Teams, clusters, public health and other stakeholders working in cancer care. They provide valuable practical support for quality improvement and lead educational sessions supporting cancer prevention, screening, recognition and referral. Our team is built of engaging, committed people who love building relationships and working with a wide range of healthcare professionals and their teams to drive improvements in cancer outcomes.
