Scottish Labour

Date lodged: 11 December 2017

To ask the Scottish Government what discussions it has had with NHS Fife regarding Macmillan Cancer Support’s Transforming Care After Treatment pilot projects; what analysis it has made of the outcomes of the projects, and whether it plans to roll-out best practice from the pilots across the rest of the NHS.

Answered by: Shona Robison 8 January 2018

The Scottish Government has not had any discussions with NHS Fife specifically regarding the pilot projects in the Transforming Care After Treatment (TCAT) programme.

The TCAT Programme Board has begun a process of systematic evaluation of the pilot projects by theme. This process is expected to conclude in the final quarter of 2018. The Scottish Government looks forward to receiving and reviewing the recommendations for the Programme evaluation at that point.
