Cancer Services Team
Medway NHS Foundation Trust | South East
Cancer patients at Medway NHS Foundation Trust are receiving some of the fastest access to cancer treatment in the UK after the Trust achieved the national standard in four key areas of cancer care for the first time in its history. Despite the pressures of the pandemic, staff worked hard to not only maintain normal services but actively improve the care that is provided to the community. This has meant that cancer patients in Medway and Swale have had an earlier diagnosis, faster treatment, a lower risk of complications, a better experience of care and improved outcomes. The work of the Cancer Services team led by Ellie Thomas, Cynthia Matarutse and Jeremy Davis has also led to national recognition, by taking the Trust from 128th to 8th in the country and making the Kent and Medway Cancer Alliance the best in the country.
