Mission, Vision and Values



London Regional Cancer Program (LRCP) provides patient centred care according to evidence based guidelines and standards. We undertake basic, clinical and translational research aimed at improving outcomes for cancer patients. We support and guide patients and families throughout their journey with cancer. We educate and train our staff, regional health care providers, the next generation of caregivers, and researchers. Together with our partners, we plan, evaluate and improve the cancer system throughout Southwestern Ontario.


To provide the best possible care today, improve care for tomorrow and diminish the need for care in the future.


As part of LHSC, we are guided in our everyday work by the core values of Respect, Collaboration and Trust .LRCP has adopted these values, and has incorporated their significance and meaning with our program values identified and developed by staff and leaders in 2001. This allows us to embrace not only how we wish to do to our work and treat each other, but also remain focused on the ultimate end goal for us all, to find a C.U.R.E.

Our Strategic Plan

We have aligned our strategic plan with the strategies identified by the Ontario Cancer Plan 2011-2015, the Southwest LHIN Integrated Health Services Plan for 2010-2013 and Strategic Blueprint – Vision 2022 as well as the London Health Sciences Strategic Plan for 2010-2013. By doing so, we have created a roadmap for the entire cancer journey, from prevention, through to treatment, survivorship, palliation and end-of-life care. We place a strong emphasis on partnerships which are critical to fulfilling our mandate and realizing our vision for the future.

We have clustered our strategies into the four key areas identified by the London Health Sciences Centre plan:

  • Leading in Patient Care and Service Delivery
  • Improving Quality and Safety
  • Strengthening Culture, Values and People
  • Advancing Research, Learning and Innovation

To enable success in these areas we have also identified 3 additional areas of focus:

  • Advancing Multi-disciplinary Disease Site Based Programs and Teams
  • Improving Management Practices, Systems and Supports
  • Planning Cancer Care for the Next Generation
