This important study will lead to the development of an implementation toolkit for DCPC that can be used throughout the NHS, providing effective depression care for patients with cancer across the UK and potential cost-savings to the NHS.

The project was used as part of an exemplar case study of embedding mental health services in acute settings by NHS England[1].

Additionally, there are plans to implement the new service model developed through the CLAHRC in a centre in Australia which will add to our knowledge of key requirements for successful implementation and reinforces the impact of this CLAHRC research both nationally and internationally.
