Abstract Introduction
40% of cancers are considered preventable and cancer causes a significant burden of morbidity and mortality. System pressures have resulted in preventative services being scaled back or decommissioned. In the East Midlands, an innovative approach utilising a preventable cancer dashboard was used to underline the potential in targeting of specific risk factors. This work resulted in the commitment of funds from the East Midlands Cancer Alliance (EMCA) to develop a regional tobacco control function. Methods In the East Midlands, the PHE centre worked with EMCA and DsPH to develop a strategy for cancer prevention. Incidence data were combined with Population Attributable Fractions for risk factors and used to estimate the number of cancers caused both now and in 2035. A Preventable Cancer Dashboard was developed to allow local systems to understand both the impact of risk factors and the potential reduction in incidence if risk factors are addressed.
Results
As a direct result of this work, funding was allocated by EMCA for the development of a regional tobacco control programme. This approach will comprise an STP/ICS and/or Health and Wellbeing Board prevention fund for tobacco control, a regional communications campaign and a regional lead post established in partnership with DsPH. The Preventable Cancer Dashboard is now being developed for national release by the CADEAS service.
Conclusions
This demonstrates that joint working between PHE, Local Authority Public Health teams and the NHS can be effective in articulating the potential of preventative approaches and in securing funding for preventative work. External funding details
