NHS East Midlands, NHS East of England and NHS West Midlands form the Midlands and East strategic health authority (SHA) cluster, with each remaining a statutory body within the cluster.

We understand that each SHA has retained its own regional clinically-led panel to make decisions on the use of the Cancer Drugs Fund.

SHA clinical panels are working collectively to promote improved access to cancer drugs.
