Sue Pilcher, North West Anglia Foundation Trust

EH-EE-Sue Pilcher, North West Anglia Foundation Trust,

East of England

NWAFT introduced the Fast Track Prostate Service to streamline the pathway for a potential prostate cancer. Being referred to hospital with a suspected cancer is obviously a very anxious time for people. By reducing this wait and doing the right tests at the right time, the Trust are also able to reassure patients who do not have a cancer much sooner. Many teams worked together to ensure the service was successfully implemented through persistence and determination.

Nominated by: Rt Hon Stephen Barclay, Lucy Frazer QC MP, Shailesh Vara MP and Daniel Zeichner MP
