Abstract

A record 2.5 million people are now estimated to be living with cancer. With advances in treatment, more than half of this population has been living at least five years after diagnosis and a quarter beyond 10 years (see figure 1). The focus of care is increasingly shifting to support people not just through initial treatment but also with living with or beyond cancer.
