Innovative Healthcare Delivery Programme Visits Scottish Cancer Centres

Published on: 1st December 2015

In November 2015, members of the Innovative Healthcare Delivery Programme (IHDP) team visited the five Scottish cancer centres (Aberdeen, Dundee, Edinburgh, Glasgow and Inverness) to discuss what current data sources and systems are in place to support local cancer services and to explore opportunities to jointly build a more dynamic, data-rich approach to managing patient pathways.

At all of the centres, the team found strong interest and commitment in building a Scottish Cancer Intelligence Framework.

IHDP are grateful to local teams for their help with arranging these visits, and also to colleagues joining the core IHDP team:

  • Professor Mahmood Adil, Medical Director – Strategic Business Unit (NSS)
  • Dr David Brewster, Director, Scottish Cancer Registry (NSS)
  • Dr Hilary Dobson, Lead Clinician, (NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde)
  • Julie Falconer, eHealth Head of Technical Strategy & Governance (Scottish Government)
