Make a difference to earlier diagnosis of cancer in north east London

Alliance Diagnostic Hub in north east London – Patient Advisory Group members

UCLH Cancer Collaborative is planning to open a new Diagnostic Hub for people living in north east London (Barking and Dagenham, City and Hackney, Havering, Newham, Redbridge, Tower Hamlets, Waltham Forest). The Hub will improve early diagnosis for patients with conditions that increase their risk of cancer, as well as monitoring patients with early stage cancer who do not need treatment right away.

They’re looking for people who would like to join a Patient Advisory Group to help develop and launch the Hub and are particularly looking for people with prostate, upper gastrointestinal or colorectal cancers, or who have a condition which increases the risk of cancer - liver cirrhosis, Barrett’s Oesophagus, Inflammatory Bowel Disease or polyps. They’d also welcome interest from people who are active members of community groups in north east London.

This is a great opportunity to co-design a person-centred approach to cancer diagnostic pathways at a dedicated centre. If you are interested, please read the Role Description, and then send a completed Expression of Interest form to , by the deadline of Monday 27 August 2018.
