Breast cancer is the most common type of cancer in the UK. In 2011, just fewer than 50,000 women were diagnosed with invasive breast cancer (NHS choices).

The overall aim of the Breast ECAG is to provide specialist advice and guidance to the East Midlands Cancer Alliance, Clinical Commissioning Groups and Specialist Commissioning Groups (SCG) on the standards of service for patients with breast cancer reflecting current best practice and opportunities for development.

The Breast ECAG will aim to ensure that patients with breast cancer receive high quality equitable cancer care throughout the East Midlands Cancer Alliance regardless of geography or socio-economic factors and will, wherever possible, endeavour to improve the standard of care provided.
