NHS reforms have adversely affected cancer services with fragmented commissioning services, and there is lack of capacity to cope with rising demand for services according to a new report published by Cancer Research UK, ‘Measuring up? The health of NHS cancer services’. The report calls for more investment in cancer and suggests CCGs budget over three years so that there can be genuine outcomes-based commissioning, and giving time for long-term cost savings to be realised. It also recommends joined up thinking/working by local and national commissioners in order to plan for future demand.
