  • agree a set of clinical guidelines and patient pathways to support the delivery of high quality equitable services across the region
  • Use available ┬ádata to consider where there may be unwarranted variation and recommend corrective action where necessary
  • use service evaluations by patients and carers to make improvements
  • monitor progress on meeting national cancer standards and ensure improvements are implemented
  • review and discuss identified risks/untoward incidents to ensure learning is spread
  • agree a common approach to research and service development.
