The National Cancer Partnership Forum (NCPF) comprises people affected by cancer and Cancer Network Partnership Group Facilitators, who are concerned with improving cancer services. The Forum will inform and be informed by cancer network partnership groups in England and will carry out a coordination and advisory role both with regard to discrete initiatives, and national consultations whilst also acting as the main arena for the exchange of ideas and information across these Groups.
The NCPF Objectives
To recommend co-ordinated pieces of work informed by national initiatives that can be worked on by local partnership groups according to their needs, and offer guidance on how to progress them.
To share issues of common interest and support an inclusive communications strategy for cancer network partnership forums.
To represent Cancer Partnership Groups in England with the National Cancer Action Team (NCAT) and ensure that the needs of people affected by cancer are heard.
