Rehabilitation is a vital component in the care of people living with and beyond cancer and is key to delivering personalised care. Cancer rehabilitation provides a range of benefits for the wider healthcare economy, but more needs to be done to raise the profile and awareness of cancer rehabilitation in London.
Integrated Care System Guidance for Cancer Rehabilitation
It aims to reduce variation and improve outcomes across London, and ensure that all patients living with and beyond cancer have access to rehabilitation at all key stages of the cancer pathway. The guidance includes an overview of cancer rehabilitation services in London and West Essex, service improvement tools outlining what good looks like, and a minimum dataset. A range of recommendations are presented alongside the next steps needed to support implementation.
