Prostate cancer is the most common cancer in men in the UK.
Every year, more than 40,000 men are diagnosed and 10,000 men die
from the disease.
To ensure that men receive the best support, Prostate Cancer UK
has a new health and social care professionals programme that will
work with the NHS and other health organisations to fund new health
and social care professional roles throughout the UK.
The professionals in these specialist roles will lead and
implement local healthcare improvement projects related to prostate
cancer pathways across primary and secondary care.
The types of roles we fund will be those that:
- Result in better integration of treatment between primary and
- Support GP practices and community services to provide care for
men with prostate cancer, or
- Support the National Cancer Survivorship Initiative (NCSI) to
ensure men living with the disease receive the care and support
We are now inviting health organisations to submit Expressions
of Interest. Read more information on the programme here
