Kerr D., Bevan H., Gowland B., Penny J., Berwick D.
Patients with cancer in the UK suffer more delays and worse survival than those in many other European states. The national cancer plan has set ambitious targets for improved care. The cancer services collaborative is using improvement methods to reduce delays and improve the service for patients. The nine cancer networks using these methods have cut waiting times and improved patients' experiences of care.
