Patients who are diagnosed earlier have a better chance of being treated successfully for cancer and surviving for longer. Nearly 25% of all cancers across the South West, are diagnosed following an emergency admission to hospital. By raising awareness of the signs and symptoms of cancer in the general population and optimising clinical practice and systems to improve access to diagnostics it is hoped to improve the rates of early diagnosis and treatment of cancers.
Our Prevention and Early Diagnosis Groups in both the Peninsula and SWAG Cancer Alliances bring together clinicians and commissioners to support improvements in the timely diagnosis of cancer across the South West.
