Cancer and surgery telehealth prehabilitation services available for the NHS to commission

No need to reinvent the wheel

Professor Tara Rampal and the team at Phase-B C.I.C (a not-for-profit company) spent 4-years researching, designing, and developing the telehealth cancer and surgical prehabilitation service, QuestPrehab™. The service is proven, published, and successfully used in the NHS. To view an example of where the service is being used, please view the Kent & Medway Cancer Prehab.

QuestPrehab™ can be commissioned and used in any healthcare setting in the UK. The service does not require any modifications to pre-existing infrastructure, processes, patient pathways, or systems; it can be seamlessly inserted into any healthcare provider. QuestPrehab™ can be tailored and white labelled with the commissioning NHS name, thus becoming part of the local services.

Results of the QuestPrehab™ service include faster recovery and significant overall improvements in health-related quality of life for patients who need to prepare for surgery or cancer treatment.

CANCER PREHAB

Cancer prehabilitation is a process on the continuum of care that occurs between the time of cancer diagnosis and the beginning of acute treatment such as chemotherapy, radiotherapy, immunotherapy and surgery. The baseline often includes physical and psychological assessments that establish a baseline functional level, identify impairments, and provide targeted interventions that improve a patient’s health to reduce the incidence and the severity of current and future impairments.

A growing body of scientific evidence supports preparing newly diagnosed cancer patients for and optimising their health before starting acute treatments. Our cancer prehab programme is delivered virtually from the comfort and safety of the patient’s home and personalised to their clinical need, ability, baseline fitness, expectations, and beliefs. It helps patients recover faster, return to their usual activities and hobbies earlier, and help tackle side effects such as fatigue and low mood often resulting from cancer treatments.
