NHS England have been working with Cancer Alliances to facilitate the prioritisation and implementation of treatment-focussed recommendations from clinical audits and Getting It Right First Time reports that will make the biggest impact in terms of improving survival outcomes and reducing inequalities. This work was piloted in 2022/23 in lung cancer, and in 2023/24 this work is now expanding to cover three new tumour sites where there is an existing clinical audit: prostate, breast, and bowel.
