Southern Cancer Network seeks new chairperson

The Southern Cancer Network (SCN) is seeking expressions of interest for a new chair for its Steering Group.

SCN is one of four regional cancer networks funded by the Ministry of Health to improve cancer care in New Zealand. It works collaboratively to reduce the incidence of cancer, and inequities of access, care and outcomes for the South Island community. Part of the South Island Alliance, SCN is directed by priorities and plans set by the Ministry of Health and South Island district health boards (DHBs).

The chair position is a key leadership role within SCN. It involves leading the Steering Group in its oversight and governance of the SCN work plan, and ensuring strong connections between the Network and its stakeholders across the South Island. Responsibilities include chairing quarterly Steering Group meetings and working in partnership with the clinical and management leadership of the Network and the wider South Island Alliance.

Applications are welcome from senior clinicians currently involved in surgical or non-surgical cancer care in the upper South Island.
