Welcome to our website
As of 1st April 2013, the Thames Valley Cancer Network (TVCN) became part of the new Thames Valley Strategic Clinical Network. As part of the new NHS organisation (a part of NHS England) we will continue to work to improve cancer services for people across Berkshire, Buckinghamshire, Oxfordshire and Swindon.
We work to support health care organisations providing cancer services and help deliver the national cancer strategy locally.
There is information available to support you if have cancer or know someone who does. You can even get involved in improving cancer services yourself, through patient groups or the TVCN User Representative Group.
Healthcare professionals can access local cancer data, information on Peer Review, details of national initiatives, guidelines and protocols, as well as logging in to obtain minutes from meetings.
