Best Healthcare Policy Programme

Sponsored by


Towards the best in Europe - delivering improved outcomes for patients with rarer cancers

by MHP Health Mandate for Rarer Cancers Foundation

Summary of work

Rarer cancers has gone from being an afterthought to an exemplar of health policy as a result of this programme, being prioritised in a way which would have been unthinkable a few years before.

Through the scrupulous collection and publication of evidence and careful alignment with the NHS reforms, a series of big wins for patients have been secured. New awareness programmes, a ground-breaking programme to develop clinical information on the use of off-label drugs and a Cancer Drugs Fund, which has benefited over 10,000 patients, are all direct results of this innovative policy programme.

Judges comments
