In this episode of BLMK Health Conversation On… we will focus on cancer detection, care of cancer patients and treatment available

BLMK Podcast

will focus cancer detection, care of cancer patients and treatment available. With one in two people now at risk of being diagnosed with cancer there has never been a more pressing time to develop and put in place a long-term plan to:

  • Diagnose cancers earlier
  • Improve people’s survival rates 
  • Provide well supported and personalised care that is closer to the patient’s home

The ICB’s long-term plan is ambitious and is focuses on diagnosing cancers earlier and faster so that more people are diagnosed at stages one or two by 2028.
