This section provides information about each of the clinical groups within the Thames Valley Cancer Strategic Clinical Network dedicated to improving services for a specific cancer or tumour type.
Each group is made up of patient representatives, members of multi-disciplinary teams and other healthcare staff from across the Thames Valley who are involved in the care and treatment of a particular cancer type. This is so that patients with that type of cancer have the best possible outcomes and quality of life.
