The Governance Model: Cancer Transformation and Improvement Board for London

Purpose, membership and authority

The Cancer Transformation and Improvement Board for London (CTIBL) is the governance body of the London Region’s cancer system and includes participation from all relevant stakeholders in cancer delivery.

The Cancer Transformation and Improvement Board for London is responsible for executive leadership and strategic decision making for delivering improvement in outcomes and experience of service users across London.

The Board oversees implementation of the NHS Long Term Plan deliverables; national and London cancer strategy and provides a forum which enables mutual accountability on delivery ensuring London’s cancer services meet and surpass expected national outcomes.

CTIBL takes a once for London approach where this is deemed the most efficient and economic model for improving the health, care and experience of people in London before and after a cancer diagnosis.

The Board operates as part of the London improvement architecture and responds to the national cancer programme. It provides a forum where key stakeholders for London’s cancer system can ensure agreed transformation programmes and improvements are made through effective collaborative working.
