Expert Advisory Groups

Expert advisory groups (EAG) provide expert clinical advice to commissioners and others to influence best possible practice across the region.

They are multi-disciplinary forums for site specific cancers or for cross cutting themes; with representation from professionals across the specific cancer care pathway. They involve users in their planning and review.

The EAG act as a group to provide expert clinical advice to commissioners and others to influence best possible practice across the region.

The EAG aims to:

  • agree a set of clinical guidelines and patient pathways to support the delivery of high quality equitable services across the region
  • use available  data to consider where there may be unwarranted variation and recommend corrective action where necessary
  • use service evaluations by patients and carers to make improvements
  • monitor progress on meeting national cancer standards and ensure improvements are implemented
  • review and discuss identified risks/untoward incidents to ensure learning is spread
  • agree a common approach to research and service development.
