GM Active CIC and GM Cancer Alliance

Greater Manchester Prehab4Cancer and Recovery Programme 

Prehab4Cancer is the first UK ICS-delivered prehabilitation and recovery programme for cancer patients and is a partnership between GM Cancer alliance and GM Active. The programme facilitates cancer patients to engage in exercise, nutrition, and wellbeing assessments and interventions prior to, during and after treatment. Since inception in 2019, P4C has supported more than 2,000 people in preparing for the physiological challenges of cancer treatments. P4C has shown improvements in physiological function, nutritional status and mental wellbeing, resulting in shortened recovery time, reduced perioperative complications and better survival. Patients are empowered to take an active role in their cancer care. The judges remarked that the work to address health inequalities was inspiring and the depth and breadth of ambition was clear. They were particularly impressed by the scale of partnership working, high-value outcomes and the manner in which they empower patients with tailored solutions.
