In Scotland, the Living with Cancer programme allocated funding to Health Boards throughout the length and breadth of the country for prevention, detection, treatment and care initiatives for people suffering from cancer.
The awards were made to a mix of both capital and revenue projects and many are being delivered by multi-agency, cross-sectoral partnerships, including almost £5 million of projects led by Macmillan Cancer Relief in the Borders, Dumfries and Galloway, Grampian, Highland and Orkney.
Other projects receiving funding include initiatives to raise awareness of cancer among hard-to-reach groups such as ethnic minorities, sensory impaired adults and manual workers. Other schemes include money advice for cancer patients and their families, palliative care training, the use of digital cameras to speed up skin cancer diagnosis, and projects to enhance primary care services and to support the innovative treatment of prostate cancer.
