NHS England has launched a 60-day consultation to seek views on proposed changes to teenager and young adult’s cancer services.

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
