Patients with head and neck cancer may be required to travel significant distances for treatment, follow up and rehabilitation. This article in thr journal Cancer Nursing Practice presents findings from an evaluation of a pilot head and neck cancer service redesign in Thames Valley Cancer Alliance to enable patients from Swindon and Wiltshire to receive follow up and rehabilitation closer to home.
