Our pathway clinical directors have formed boards and expert reference groups (ERGs) made up of patients, primary care representatives and cancer professionals from across the region. The role of these pathway boards and cross-cutting ERGs is to improve cancer care for patients, delivering an integrated care pathway that extends from presentation and diagnosis through to palliative care and living with and beyond cancer.

Our pathway boards and ERGs aim to ensure that every patient will:

  • Have access to the most equitable, effective and responsive cancer service in the UK, with outcomes that can compete with the best in the world
  • Feel fully supported in their care and treatment
  • Have access to all available treatment options, no matter where they live or first access our care
  • Benefit from participation in clinical trials (as appropriate).
