DIMENSIONS
Regional
The health care challenge in the West of Scotland is considerable. Most of the deprived
communities in Scotland (and in the UK as a whole) exist within the Network’s boundaries. The
West of Scotland Cancer Network serves a population of 2,516,142 people (49% of the
Scottish population) where 1 in 3 people will get cancer and 1 in 4 will die from cancer. Other
significant healthcare issues such as co morbidities (e.g. coronary heart disease) and lifestyle
factors (e.g. smoking and diet) of its local population compound this healthcare challenge.
The Network works closely with a diverse range of people and organisations, statutory and
voluntary, to deliver effective and efficient services, tackling inequalities, driving up standards of
care and improving outcomes. This includes:





Patients, carers, and their families
All staff involved in cancer care
NHS Boards & Local Authorities
National bodies including Scottish Government Health Department and the Scottish
Parliament, plus key organisations such as Healthcare Improvement Scotland, NHS
Education Scotland, the national Information and Statistics Division, Scottish
Intercollegiate Guidelines Network, Royal Colleges, professional groups and many
others.
Third sector partner organisations e.g. Macmillan Cancer Support, Marie Curie Cancer
Care, Breast Cancer Care and the Scottish Partnership for Palliative Care.
The Network is a large and highly complex matrix organisation spanning 4 West of Scotland
NHS Boards: NHS Ayrshire & Arran, NHS Forth Valley, NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde, and
NHS Lanarkshire, with some people travelling from other parts of Scotland, notably the
Western Isles and Dumfries & Galloway, to receive specialist treatment and care. The Network
encompasses services delivered across a range of settings including the Beatson West of
Scotland Cancer Centre (the second largest Cancer Centre in the UK) 13 main acute hospitals,
multiple integrated health and social care partnerships.
The RCAG Executive provides high-level strategic guidance to constituent NHS Boards and the
Regional Planning Group; leads the planning of regional cancer services, ensuring a coherent
and equitable approach that takes account of local, regional and national priorities; progresses
work on regional priority issues; agrees and reviews annual work programmes with regional
MCNs and specialty networks/services; reviews clinical audit data for different specialties,
assuring the quality of cancer care provision across the region, reporting directly to Board Chief
Executives; and ensures adequate two-way communication and accountability between MCNs,
RCAG, NHS Boards and the Regional Planning Group.
Membership includes: Designated Chair (NHS Board Chief Executive); Regional Lead Cancer
Clinician (this post); Regional Manager (Cancer), Senior Operational General Managers and
Cancer Clinical Leads from each of the 4 West of Scotland NHS Board areas and the Beatson
West of Scotland Cancer Centre; Director of Regional Planning; MCN Lead Clinicians; and
service user representatives.
The delivery of clinical care throughout the West of Scotland is driven by ten region-wide MCNs
(detailed below). Each MCN is responsible to the RCAG for their activities and has been
developed in line with the guidance noted below. Individual MCN Boards (involving approx. 1012 senior clinicians, managers and patient/carer representatives) meet every 4 months.

Regional MCNs are underpinned by a number of formalised regional specialty
networks/regional groups (involving approx. 10-15 senior clinicians, managers and
patient/carer representatives quarterly) that span MCNs, for example: Pharmacy, Nursing, and
the Scottish Cancer Research Network.
Work identified by the RCAG is also progressed via short life working groups, for example the
Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy Future Service Delivery Group.
National
The Scottish Cancer Taskforce drives the cancer strategy of NHS Scotland and has a
significant bearing on how the NHS configures and invests in cancer care. Taskforce subgroups and their respective work programmes are designed to support NHS Scotland in the
delivery of sustainable best practice and improvement.
The post holder together with the Regional Manager (Cancer) is the primary representative of
WoSCAN and West of Scotland NHS Boards on the Scottish Cancer Taskforce and actively
participates in the work of the Taskforce and its sub groups.
National Services Scotland (NSS) commission services that are best provided on a national
basis. Where such services are provided from a number of sites national MCNs have been
commissioned. The 3 national adult cancer MCNs are hosted and managed by WoSCAN on
behalf of NSS (i.e. neuro-oncology, hepatobiliary cancers and bone and soft tissue sarcomas).

organisational and professional boundaries. The Network exists to ensure equitable provision of
high quality, clinically effective cancer services throughout the region across Prevention,
Screening, Diagnosis, Treatment, Information Provision, Palliation and Bereavement such that
cancer incidence, morbidity and mortality is decreased, whilst patient empowerment, knowledge
