NHS England said a report that 500,000 cancer survivors are living with debilitating consequences of the disease draws attention to the "changing nature" of the challenges the NHS has to meet.
A spokesman said, "This is why we have launched a 'call to action' as we need to engage the public and professions in a dialogue about how we create an NHS that meets people's need in a personal way and is fit for the future rather than based on a 20th Century model."
