Abstract

An on-line copy of the report and supporting data and papers is available from the Commission for Health Improvement The Calman-Hine report, a key report on cancer services published in 1995, was seen as the forerunner of national service frameworks. This major new study by the Commission for Health Improvement and the Audit Commission looks at what progress has been made in England and Wales towards the vision set out in the Calman-Hine report. CHSS contributed to the report in providing a detailed analysis of hospital episode statistics. This review of cancer services is structured around patients' experiences of cancer and the complicated system of multiple servcies with which they come into contact. Although this review includes messages for those involved in making and carrying out policies, it will be of interest to a much wider range of people. This review will also be of interest to a much wider range of people. This review will also be useful to the many different groups, individual patients and families who want to learn more about cancer services. At the end of relevant chapters, important issues for patients are highlighted in a secion called 'Hallmarks of a good service and questions patients might ask'.
