NHS England | June 2019 | Teenagers and Young Adults Cancer Services
NHS England has launched a 60-day consultation to seek views on proposed changes to teenager and young adult’s cancer services. These are used by teenagers and young people aged between 16 up to the day before their 25th birthday. In some cases, and with the agreement of Children’s Cancer Services, they may also treat teenagers from the age of 13.
The aim of the service specifications is to improve the outcomes and experience of teenagers and young adults with cancer.
This consultation guide sets out:
- How care is currently provided.
- The proposed changes and reasons for these.
- How the proposed changes will be implemented
The consultation is open until 4 August 2019
