Such a well-deserved tribute to her hard work and determination, in what has been at times challenging circumstances. Her leadership is superb: she inspires every one of her team with enthusiasm and dedication. WTG Sally!
From 1 April 2021, Bedfordshire, Luton and Milton Keynes CCGs are planning to become one single NHS Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG) in line with NHS England’s Long Term Plan.
This will have an impact on how they operate as commissioners, (commissioning is the process by which health and care services are planned, purchased and monitored) and how they work together in the future.
Over the next few months, they will be engaging with GP Members, their staff, local service providers, councils, other partners and patients to listen to all views before they submit their final application in September 2020.
In the meantime you have the opportunity to share your views in a questionnaire: it is now live and is open until Sunday 13 September.Click here to take the survey.
Please read the Public Engagement Document that accompanies the questionnaire. This explains what they are proposing, and why.
They really value your comments, so please let them know your views by completing the survey.
If you would like more information on the proposed changes, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
We’re thrilled to announce that Bosom Pals, our large and highly successful breast cancer support group, has won the Queen’s Award for Voluntary Service!
Led by President Jaff Newton, who is also Secretary of the MKCPP, many Bosom Pals members also work closely with the MKCPP to share best practice across all areas of cancer care in the city.
It’s said that winning this prestigious award is equivalent to being awarded an MBE. So please join us in sending Bosom Pals our sincerest and fondest congratulations.

Keeping everyone informed on the projects going through the MKCPP at any one time. This is us updated as at February 10th, 2018.Closing the gap between hospital and community care for patients living with Cancer and Beyond
Increasingly this is becoming a critical issue, especially given that cancer patients being discharged back into the community to continue living with and beyond cancer often have to jump over a large gap between secondary and primary care. We in the MKCPP have been flagging up this problem for nearly five years now. It is gratifying to see that many other localities, NHS and other groups as well as charities (including Macmillan), are arriving at the same conclusion.
In 2016, Angela Sheldrick, Breast ANP at MKUH was seconded by Macmillan and NHS England to manage Macmillan’s generic Living With & Beyond Cancer project in our locality to move more treatment, and especially post-treatment care, onto a more workable basis in closer partnership with primary care. This move was welcomed by us all in the MKCPP (… especially as we had been asking about it for four years.)
