  • Proposed improved access to information and support for patients
  • Super-specialist (called ‘sub-specialist’) treatment & care for those with rarer cancers
  • Radiotherapy closer to home for the majority
  • Networking and reorganisation of radiotherapy workforce so that expertise can be shar
