Original uncertainty examples For some people, newer medicines mean that cancers and leukaemias are treated more like a chronic disease now, so what's the best way for them to get their healthcare - do they always need to see a specialist or can follow ups be done at their GPs surgery? ~  What is the role of community pharmacy in supporting patients living with and beyond cancer with their medicines? ~ How well are we supporting AYA patients treated for Hodgkin's Lymphomas in the 1980s, who are now facing late effects and second cancers as a result of their treatment?  Can anything be done to reduce their considerable risks? ~  How do CCGs, Secondary Care, Primary Care, Community sector and voluntary sector work better together to give cohesive support to those living with and beyond cancer?  Especially when there are competing priorities for funding and resources. ~ Appropriate methods to deliver long-term treatments (e.g. 10 years of endocrine treatment for breast cancer) with minimum disruption to everyday life.
