The purpose of this Manual of Cancer Services Standards and Performance Indicators is to provide a framework to enable local cancer networks in England to assess the quality of services they provide. The standards apply to secondary and tertiary providers of cancer services within cancer networks and should be used to assess their services to further improve the delivery of cancer services. This assessment will form the basis of regionally coordinated peer review site visits. [Book abstract]
