Information collated by NHS England in 2017 indicates that around half of hospital trusts were delivering patient education and support events for breast cancer patients. However, it is important to note that in the same information collection, almost all trusts indicated they are providing health and wellbeing information and support through various methods, including one-to-one conversations. Additionally, the recovery package, a set of four interventions designed to help patients and clinicians assess a patient’s holistic needs and plan appropriately for their care and support, is being commissioned and delivered in full or in part by many clinical commissioning groups and providers across England.
