Cancer services for children, teenagers and young adults in the UK are changing.
Recently, we’ve seen developments in cancer care in Wales, Scotland, England and Northern Ireland, all of which recognise that children, teenagers and young adults with cancer have specific needs, but at the same time the NHS is under increasing pressure.Improvements have been made in cancer services across the UK, but progress still needs to be made in key area of experience for children, teenagers and young adults, including earlier diagnosis, access to age-appropriate services and post-treatment support.
