NHS England leads the NHS in England, setting the priorities and direction of the NHS and informing the national debate to improve health and care. We strongly believe in health and high quality care for all, now and for future generations and want everyone to have greater control of their health and wellbeing, and to be supported to live longer, healthier lives by high quality health and care services that are compassionate, inclusive and constantly-improving.

NHS England shares out more than £100 billion in funds and holds organisations to account for their spending. Our work involves the commissioning of health care services in England, and we support local health services that are led by Clinical Commissioning Groups (CCGs). We have devised and are delivering a strategic vision for the NHS, along with our partners in health, called the Five Year Forward View.

This is an exciting time for the NHS Cancer Programme. Our work to implement the Independent Cancer Taskforce strategy has already started to transform the experience of cancer patients across England. The publication of the Long-Term Plan for the NHS provides us with an opportunity to go even further. You will be instrumental in delivering on our ambition to diagnose three in four cancers at an early stage so that even more people survive cancer in the future.
