Final evaluation of phase 1 of a two year pilot project across 16 sites in the UK looking to support a more holistic approach to cancer care. The One-to-One Support pilot project funded four new Macmillan roles that sat alongside the existing cancer workforce, comprising complex case managers, community nurses, primary care nurses and support workers. The report examines postholder activity data, feedback from the sites and from people affected by cancer who have accessed One-to-One Support, and the economic implications of this intervention. It indicates that while the model is unlikely to generate savings in the short-term, by working together, the new roles and existing cancer workforce have enabled people living with cancer to have the time and guidance they require to identify their concerns, manage their own care and take back control. This has also had the positive outcome of helping to improve patient experience at the pilot sites. (Edited publisher abstract)
