Oncology is a singularly complex healthcare area. In clinical terms, every year the NHS must treat thousands of patients with a huge range of different cancers – at different stages and rates of morbidity and mortality. Rare tumour types must be dealt with just as more common ones.
Systems must find new ways of funding diagnostics and treatments effectively and equitably.
In the English NHS, new stakeholder groupings such as cancer alliances, new pathways, new funding mechanisms and new drivers such as addressing health inequalities and improving population health are all influencing cancer care. There is also a focus on finding undiagnosed patients and rolling out improved screening processes locally.

Our oncology capabilities
Wilmington Healthcare holds contact data on all cancer alliances and all cancer alliance board members. We can also identify cancer stakeholders by subspecialty, from a wide variety of cancer types.
We also provide data across cancer alliances and CCGs on waiting times and diagnostic stages. This data can be visualised via our Quantis product to produce heat maps of where the greatest challenges are, and where such diagnostic waits could be hampering survival from your therapies – plus many other useful presentation tools to help highlight the story you want to take to oncology decision-makers.
