Expressions of Interest Sought for Cancer Patient Advisory Committee

Posted on 18 Nov 2021

The Department of Health is seeking expressions of interest for membership of the Cancer Patient Advisory Committee.  

The Cancer Patient Advisory Committee was established in January 2019 in line with Recommendation 39 of the National Cancer Strategy 2017-2026: 

“The Department of Health will establish a Cancer Patient Advisory Committee to provide input into the development of programmes for patients with cancer. Membership of this committee will reflect the diverse nature of patients living with the effects of cancer, and will ensure that the needs of patients living in more remote areas are represented.” 

The Department of Health is primarily looking for people who have direct experience of cancer treatment as a patient, but people who have supported a family member or close friend through cancer treatment, or who support cancer patients as part of their work, will also be considered. 

An expression of interest form with further information is available at this page. The closing date for receipt of completed forms is Friday 10 December.
