Celebrating two years of Prehabilitation Delivery in County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust


The Co. Durham Wellbeing for the Time Being Project which incorporates both the Waiting Well and Cancer Treatment Outcomes Programme was launched at the end of November 2021.

Two years on and County Durham and Darlington NHS Foundation Trust (CDDFT) has been nationally recognised as a trail blazer for prehabilitation delivery in our region.

Awareness and understanding of the importance of prehab for all patients prior to any treatment, is increasing and it will be part of the Major Conditions Strategy and the National Cancer Plan for 2023/24.

As prehab within CDDFT grows in strength, we hope to continue as we move out of the pilot phase with evidence and patient experience to show the difference it has made.



'Care received was fantastic and I was very well looked after and very impressed.'
