South Tyneside is looking forward to the next phase in our development of support for Primary Care Networks focusing on the Cancer pathway, and we are looking for enthusiastic, committed, can-do people to join our journey.

As this is a new role you will have the chance to input to the service development and how the role will evolve over time. The Care Co-Ordinators will be supporting patients throughout their cancer pathway, helping them to understand the importance of attending their clinical investigations, and implications of their diagnosis and what the next steps are. The roles involve coordinating all key activity including access to services, advice and information, and ensuring health and care planning is timely, efficient and patient-centred.

We are seeking applications from individuals with a minimum of three years’ experience in an NHS or healthcare organisation. We are looking for a positive team player who strives to go the extra mile to help colleagues and others who come into contact with the organisation.
