Cancer

St Helens CCG Cancer Strategy


Cancer presents a significant health challenge. It is the biggest cause of death from illness or disease in every age group, therefore it is our vision and priority to ensure we work together to:

  • Ensure patients are diagnosed early
  • Make sure their cancer journey is a supportive experience both living with the disease and beyond cancer 
  • Ensure patients receive the help and support they need to enjoy a good quality of life
  • Ensure the St Helens community residents are empowered to live long and healthy lives 

The strategy for 2017 -2010 supports partners to come together and deliver our above vision. The strategy builds on the great work already in place in St Helens, while recognising that we should always be striving to improve the care and outcomes for our patients.
