Personalised Care for people living with and beyond cancer

Updated: Sep 19, 2023

Learning Lunch Webinar



Watch our latest presentation on how the Personalised Care NHS Long Term Plan is evolving to ensure people have more choice and control over the way their care is planned and delivered. This ensures that it is based on ‘what matters’ to them and their individual strengths and needs.


There are several components of personalised care that work together to deliver an overall holistic approach for the patient throughout their treatment and beyond; this includes building strong relationships with Social Prescribing and other community-based support. Personalised care recognises that, for many people, their needs arise from circumstances beyond the purely medical, and by introducing connections to services and organisations in their communities, this will enable the person living with cancer to access support and build resilience at a time that suits them.
