UK updates head and neck cancer service standards:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The UK's Department of Health has published the Head and Neck Measures of the Manual for Cancer Services. The 98-page document features capacity guidelines and other criteria that have implications for specific areas of these services, including imaging and pathology. The standards of care set out in the manual, which was published in 2004 but has now been updated, aim to help NHS providers identify gaps in provision, particularly with regard to safety and clinical and cost-effectiveness. It is based on recommendations issued by the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (Improving Outcomes Guidance), focusing on "aspects of service that are most likely to have a significant impact on health outcomes". Audit-related measures are under development, noted Teresa Moss, director of cancer modernisation, in a cover letter to NHS managers (June 1).
