By 2021, where appropriate every person diagnosed with cancer will have access to personalised care, including needs assessment, a care plan, health and wellbeing information and support. This will be delivered in line with the NHS Comprehensive Model for Personalised Care. This will empower people to manage their care and the impact of their cancer and maximise the potential of digital and community-based support. Over the next three years, every patient with cancer will receive a Personalised Care and Support Plan based on holistic needs assessment, end of treatment summaries, health and wellbeing information and support. All patients, including those with secondary cancers, will have access to the right expertise and support, including a Clinical Nurse Specialist or other support worker.
