Living With Cancer Strategy for Lincolnshire
The Lincolnshire Living with Cancer programme aims to change and improve the experience of people living with cancer in the county. Please find out more and take a look at our Living With Cancer Strategy for Lincolnshire.
There are currently 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer; this is expected to rise to 5.3 million by 2040. Cancer survival is at its highest ever, with significant improvements made in the last 15 years, and people are now twice as likely to survive at least 10 years after being diagnosed with cancer as they were at the start of the 1970s.
In Lincolnshire alone, with our ageing population and with these improvements in diagnosis, treatment and aftercare there are currently over 32,000 people living with cancer and this is expected to rise to 45,400 by 2030.
‘We will develop person-centred, local support for people living with cancer, their carers and significant others in Lincolnshire’
