Our Priorities and Programmes
Humber, Coast and Vale Cancer Alliance, which is part of Humber, Coast and Vale Health and Care Partnership, is a collaboration of health and social care organisations working together to achieve world class cancer outcomes for our communities.
The Alliance’s vision, values, and priorities are embedded through its four programmes of work:
- Awareness and Early Diagnosis
- Treatment and Pathways
- Living With and Beyond Cancer
In collaboration with partners, stakeholders, and the public, the Alliance is working to transform cancer services and improve outcomes for patients across Humber, Coast and Vale.

Humber, Coast and Vale Cancer Alliance
More people are surviving cancer than ever before, but we know that we can save even more lives by catching more cancers early and starting treatment fast.
One in every two people in this country will be told they have cancer at some point in their lives.
Our NHS Long Term Plan aims to save thousands more lives each year by dramatically improving how we diagnose and treat cancer – our ambition is that by 2028, an extra 55,000 people each year will survive for five years or more following their cancer diagnosis.
This will include improving our national screening programmes, giving people faster access to diagnostic tests, investing in cutting edge treatments and technologies, and making sure more patients can quickly benefit from precise, highly personalised treatments as medical science advances.
A summary of the NHS Long Term Plan for Cancer is now available.
More information on the NHS Long Term Plan for Cancer can be found at www.longtermplan.nhs.uk/areas-of-work/cancer/
