This training is available to the entire cancer workforce in the region, from doctors and nurses in hospitals and general practice to allied health professionals.

Since the Hub launched in 2018 with a £180,000 grant from the Rosemere Cancer Foundation, it has held study days, masterclasses and hosted the first Lancashire and South Cumbria Cancer Conference which was attended by over 100 delegates.

The Hub is based at Royal Preston Hospital which is the Cancer Centre for Lancashire and South Cumbria.
