Health service capability profiles


The NEMICS service map is supported by a series of service profiles that provide information on annual activity and capacity, an analysis of patients using public and private cancer services and an assessment of regional service gaps and priorities.

Health service profiles are been developed for the following cancer services:

  • chemotherapy health service profile reviews capacity, access, and level of service of each of the 10 public and private provider’s day oncology units in the NEMICS region
  • radiotherapy health service profile reviews capacity, access, and level of service of each of the two public and two private provider’s Radiation Oncology Units in the NEMICS region.
  • surgical oncology health service profile provides an assessment of surgical oncology services and key quality indicators for oncology surgical procedures. This also shows key results from a survey on the configuration of tumour resection sites in the NEMICS region, undertaken by surgeons working in oncology over October 2013
  • cancer support services health service profile identifies information gaps and planning priorities for select cancer support services

Clinical colleagues are continuing to be engaged to agree on an approach to addressing any gaps and issues identified.
