The internet has facilitated the reorganisation of various parts of the commercial world, and e-commerce is the term used to describe the products of this reorganisation. The National Health Service (NHS), for a variety of reasons, some political some economic, some ''Old Conservative'' some ''New Labour'', but not as a result of improvements in networking, has also experienced reorganisation in recent years. This paper first revues the pressure for change on the NHS's provision of services for sufferers of cancer within Kent and then relates the possibilities for beneficial reorganisation to those changes in the commercial world, which can be attributed to the internet.
