Reducing variation in waiting times for lung cancer patients - new pathway to support commissioning

cancer.pngReducing cancer waiting times is a national priority. The cancer network has revised the lung cancer pathway, working in close consultation with commissioners of lung cancer services, health and social care professionals, lung cancer patients, charities and other voluntary organisations across Cheshire and Merseyside. Julie Hendry, consultant lung physician at Whiston Hospital and Chair of our lung cancer network group played a key role in working with us to develop the new pathway. Julie is also CMSCN's representative on the national clinical reference group for lung cancer.
