Steering Group Member: Patient Experience and User Involvement Steering Group

This is an opportunity for people affected by cancer to help UCLH Cancer Collaborative shape and improve cancer in North Central and East London and West Essex, driving the co-design and delivery of our patient experience and user involvement programme of work.

Closing date: Monday 03 September 2018

Location: Meetings will be held in an accessible venue within Central London.

Payment and Expenses: Reasonable travel expenses will be reimbursed in line with the Expenses Policy.

Time commitment: The length of tenure for each member will be 2 years.  Bi-monthly meetings will run for 1.5 - 2 hours

You will need to allow yourself time to prepare for the meetings, including reading and digesting the meeting papers, and discussing key issues with your own networks (e.g. a support group or patient / carer forum you attend) as appropriate.

In addition, there may be occasional project work and involvement via email in between meetings.

About this role:

As a member of the Patient Experience and User Involvement Steering Group, you’ll play a pivotal role in promoting a collaborative approach between the UCLH Cancer Collaborative and people affected by cancer.  You’ll ensure partner organisations (including Trusts and CCGs) meaningfully involve people affected by cancer to design and improve services to deliver positive patient experience.

The team would like to receive expressions of interest from:

  • People who have been treated for cancer, or have cared for someone who has received treatment for cancer, within the past 5 years.
  • People who have received (or cared for a person who has received) treatment for cancer at an NHS hospital in the UCLH Cancer Collaborative area.
  • People who are members of a voluntary and community sector service supporting people affected by cancer.

They are especially interested to hear from people from black and ethnic minority backgrounds, people under 45, and LGBT people, as we know that these groups often experience extra barriers when it comes to accessing and engaging with cancer services.

How can I get involved?
