The Cancer Plan has achieved impressive results since it was published in 2000.

However, demographic trends, new treatments, increasing survival rates and reforms in the NHS have altered the context in which cancer services operate.

Cancer Research UK commissioned this paper to explore how cancer policy should evolve in response to these changes.

Using a literature review and interviews with ten experts on different aspects of cancer, this report aims to stimulate debate about the next steps for cancer services in England.
