My Rt. Hon. Friend the Secretary of State has not recently met with any stakeholders about the future of the National Cancer Peer Review programme.

NHS England is currently reviewing the National Cancer Peer Review programme with a view to considering how its success might be extended into other new areas of specialised commissioning. This review will consider the benefits of the programme. Regardless of the outcome of this review, cancer peer review will continue to play a critical part of any broader peer review programme NHS England may look to introduce.

NHS England provides regular updates on its work to external and internal stakeholders every 3-4 weeks. There are also briefings given at key meetings and to key groups - for example the Patient and Public Voice Assurance Group. Updates can be found on the NHS England website.
