Chair and upper South Island senior clinician representative for Southern Cancer Network Steering Group

With the resignation of the current Chair/Upper South Island senior clinician representative on the Southern Cancer Network (SCN), we wish to fill this vacancy.

The SCN is one of four regional cancer networks, funded by the Ministry of Health to improve cancer care in the South Island.  Our work is directed by priorities and plans set by the Ministry and South Island district health boards (DHBs), with an annual work plan that forms part of the Te Waipounamu Regional Health Services Plan.  The focus is to work collaboratively to reduce the incidence of cancer and to reduce inequities of access, care and outcomes for cancer patients.

The role of chair involves leading the Steering Group in its oversight and governance of the work plan for SCN.  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.

If you are an experienced senior clinician currently involved in surgical or non-surgical cancer care in the upper South Island, we'd love to hear from you.
