Cancer Care Coordinator

Cancer Care Coordinator

A Cancer Care Coordinator works as a key part of the PCN multi-disciplinary team.

They are a key link to the people whose care we are supporting, operating as a go to person to ensure that their care is seamless. Care Coordinators provide extra time, capacity and expertise to support patients in preparing for or in following-up clinical conversations they have with primary care professionals.

The Cancer Care Coordinator works closely with the Clinical Leads and other primary care professionals within the PCN to make sure that appropriate support is made available to them and their carers, and ensuring that their changing needs are addressed.

The Cancer Care Coordinator is involved in increasing screening uptake and works closely with various practice teams to identify and work with groups and individual patients to increase uptake and provide, co-ordinate and navigate the appropriate care and support for patients across the PCN.

This includes achieving and exploring all options of support, completing a cancer care review based on what matters to the patient, assisting them to access services and identify any support they require, understanding and managing their own health and wellbeing.
