answer text <p>The NHS Long Term Plan provides an excellent opportunity to look at how cancer and other services can be further improved over the next decade. The plan is currently in development and will be published later in the year.</p><p> </p><p>The independent Cancer Taskforce identified establishing patient experience on a par with clinical effectiveness and safety and transforming our approach to support people living with and beyond cancer as strategic priorities in the report ‘Achieving World-class Cancer Outcomes: A Strategy for England, 2015-2020’. In December 2016, NHS England announced a fund of over £200 million available to Cancer Alliances over the next two years, specifically to support those areas of the strategy that they estimated would need significant investment, including to help patients living with and beyond cancer.</p><p> </p><p>As part of that programme of work, the Recovery Package is being commissioned and delivered in full or in part by many clinical commissioning groups and providers across England. NHS England’s aim is to accelerate the process to ensure full implementation by 2020 so the package will be available to all cancer patients across the country regardless of location. Alongside this, NHS England is building up a picture of current provision to help target future work to support rollout.</p>
