NHS Fife Cancer Framework 2022 25 Cover

NHS Fife has launched the Board’s new Cancer Framework, setting out how effective cancer prevention, early diagnosis and high-quality sustainable cancer services will be delivered for those living with and beyond cancer.

The Cancer Framework has been developed to ensure there is a full system approach to the delivery of sustainable cancer services to support the increased incidence in cancer and those living with and beyond a cancer diagnosis in Fife. It aligns with the Scottish Government Cancer Strategy, Recovery Plan post COVID and our local Health and Population Wellbeing Strategy.

It is underpinned by the 6 principles of realistic medicine and will link in with national and regional services to ensure our patients receive the best care and are at the heart our services.
