upper gastrointestinal pathway

What is the programme and its aims?
The East Midlands Cancer Clinical Network has developed a standardised, integrated, evidence-based, high value pathway of care for patients with upper gastrointestinal cancers, which is available to all, no matter where they live.

Who are the partners?
We are working in close partnership with the local providers and clinical commissioning groups.

How are we making a difference?
It is estimated to save over £1m as a result of identifying high value activities and reducing inefficiencies, and is included in the 2015/16 commissioning round.

What’s next?
The East Midlands Cancer Clinical Network will review the implementation of the pathway with commissioners and providers through expert clinical advisory groups.

What are the key resources?
