Pan-London Blood Cancer guidelines
We are collaborating with partners across south east London to improve aspects of care right through from diagnosis to how we care for people living with and beyond cancer. The new guidelines have been written to help clinicians in the network follow clear, consistent and evidence-based referral pathways for patients with blood cancers.
In doing so we are able to provide more consistent approaches to treatment and reduce unwarranted variations in care, ultimately helping to improve patient outcomes on a wider scale.
