About us

There is a cancer centre in Coventry at University Hospitals Coventry & Warwickshire and three cancer units: George Eliot Hospital, Warwick Hospital, the Alexandra Hospital in Redditch and two sub-units at Solihull and Rugby St Cross. The Network is composed of all those with a part to play in commissioning, delivering and receipt of cancer services. It is supported by a team which comprises: Network Lead Clinician, Network Lead Nurse, Network Manager, Network Service Improvement Clinician and Service Improvement Team.

The Network Board is made up from senior representatives of each hospital trust and PCT, the Network Lead team, user representatives and representatives of the voluntary sector, strategic health authority, workforce confederation and Primary Care. Its Chairman is a PCT Chief Executive.

The Network has many other groups of people with the skills and knowledge to shape our policy in each part of cancer services. These cover each of the cancer tumour sites and other specialist areas and they involve hundreds of clinicians and others from all over the network.

Everything we do requires partnership working, putting the needs of patients ahead of the interests of staff or of institutions. The Network staff continue to work alongside clinical teams within the area to improve and build on current services and encourage the sharing of good practice throughout the teams.
