The Cancer Alliance is based at 722 Prince of Wales Road, Sheffield, and is one of the programmes of work in the South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System.
The South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw Integrated Care System (ICS) is a partnership of 23 organisations responsible for looking after the health and care of the 1.5 million people living in Barnsley, Bassetlaw, Doncaster, Rotherham and Sheffield. It is made up of NHS organisations (including us), local authorities and key voluntary sector and independent partners in our region.
An Integrated Care System is another way of describing the ambition we have locally to ensure health and care services are the best they can possibly be. By working together we will be able to better join up GPs and hospitals, physical and mental healthcare, social care and the NHS and give our patients the seamless care they have told us they want.
Through partnership working, we believe we can make real and long lasting improvements to the health of local people. As individuals and organisations working alone, we would never be able to achieve the same results.
Our goal is simple. We want everyone in South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw to have a great start in life, with the support they need to stay healthy and live longer. To find out more visit: https://www.healthandcaretogethersyb.co.uk/
In 2017 the partners who now form the Integrated Care System published a System Transformation Plan for South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw. Following the publication of the NHS Long Term Plan earlier in 2019 partners are now working together to create a new 5 year plan, which sets out how South Yorkshire and Bassetlaw organisations will work together to help deliver the Long Term Plan in our area.
The 'Cancer Patient Experience Share & Learn' event was held in Birmingham on 15 Jan 2020. The event saw Cancer Alliances across the country come together (along with lay reps and partners involved with inequalities and early diagnosis) to discuss and share ideas on patient experience, with a particular focus on inequalities and early diagnosis.
