Manchester Cancer

Manchester Cancer is the name of the cancer work stream of MAHSC.

The key responsibilities of Manchester Cancer are to:

  • Ensure a successful future BRC application for cancer
  • Ensure the cancer theme contributes to the re-designation of MAHSC
  • Ensure the implementation of an IOG (improving outcomes guidance) compliant configuration of specialist surgical services

A structure and work programme to deliver this exciting agenda has been developed.
