Northern Ireland Cancer Network Groups

NICaN Groups  

NICaN facilitates a network of groups called Clinical Reference Groups (CRGs).  These groups meet to address a particular type of cancer (e.g. Breast, Lung), or a particular service area (e.g. radiotherapy).

The CRGs include a full range of healthcare professionals from across the cancer care pathway and members who represent the patient and public voice and who have experience of the cancer journey. 

The clinical reference groups meet regularly and work collaboratively to deliver the following key core objectives:

  • Service planning/delivery

  • Service improvement and redesign

  • Quality monitoring and evaluation

  • Education and workforce

  • Research and development
