The Strategy Unit was a partner in this project, led by the Health Services Management Centre at the University of Birmingham.  The project was commissioned by Cancer Research UK to understand the capacity of endoscopy services to meet growing demand.  The work included evidence collation, qualitative interviews with staff managing and delivering endoscopy services across England, quantitative modelling and analysis and triangulation of all the findings to make a series of recommendations. The findings were shared with the Independent Cancer Taskforce to inform the recently published cancer strategy.
