The national cancer strategy; Achieving World Class Cancer Outcomes: A strategy for England 2015 – 2020 and the recently published NHS Long Term Plan set an exciting vision for the transformation of cancer services to radically improve cancer outcomes and to ensure that patients can benefit from high quality modern services. To support this ambitious agenda, the Cheshire and Merseyside Cancer Alliance, (covering 2.4 million people) has been established to drive forward cancer transformation locally. The programme is now entering its third year and working with established clinical leadership forums and local partners, a core Alliance team is driving this agenda, focusing on delivering best practice, value and experience for patients.
Cheshire & Merseyside Cancer Alliance are working in partnership with Prospect Business Consulting to deliver a series of FREE One Day MDT Leadership Masterclasses. This training will be an exciting opportunity to develop skills in leadership and chairing, explore factors that impact MDT effectiveness and also to understand practical ways of improving team performance. CPD has been applied for and credits are anticipated, this will be confirmed. Places are limited and allocated on a first come, first served basis for Cheshire and Merseyside colleagues. Those eligible for the masterclass include: MDT chairs and leads, Cancer clinical leads, SRG leads, CQG leads, and a nominated specialist nurse for each MDT.
