Chief Nursing Officer Professor Charlotte McArdle, Co-Chair of the Department of Health steering group tasked with developing the new strategy explains, “Over the course of our lives we will all feel the impacts of cancer, whether directly or indirectly.

“So it is important that we hear the views of as many people as possible.

“It is our ambition, that through this strategy, we will develop a world-class service which is based on improving outcomes for everyone diagnosed with cancer in Northern Ireland.



“By getting involved in the consultation process you will have the opportunity to help shape the future of cancer services and make our ambition become a reality for people living here,” she adds.

The draft cancer strategy consists of 67 recommendations drawn from the best available evidence and reflecting the voices of people who use and work in cancer services.

The recommendations are across four key themes:

 1. Reduce the growth in the number of people diagnosed with preventable cancers

 2. Diagnosis and treatment – to improve survival

 3. Patient experience – to improve the experience of people diagnosed with cancer

 4. Implementing the Strategy



The consultation will close on 20 October 2021 and the EQIA will close on 17 November 2021.

Further information on the consultation process is published on the Department of Health website.
