The NCIN is a UK wide initiative working to drive improvements in standards of cancer care and clinical outcomes through the use of data and intelligence.
Its 12 Site Specific Clinical Reference Groups (SSCRGs) have a remit to provide clinical and specialist advice to support the NCIN’s core objectives. The groups are well established, with representation from clinical specialities including medical and clinical oncology, pathology, radiology, nursing and surgery, and also from patients, the voluntary sector and national cancer organisations.Each Group meets at least twice a year as well as holding a one day workshop for Cancer Network Tumour Leads. The Chairs of each of the 12 SSCRGs also meet twice annually as the NCIN Chairs Forum.
We are seeking consumer representation for:
- the Gynaecology SSCRG (ideally with experience of endometrial cancer); and
- the Haematology SSCRG, (ideally with experience of Myeloma)
