The Northern Ireland Cancer Network is a regional clinical network that links together the organisations that provide care for people with cancer across the five Health and Social Care Trust areas.
NICaN is a partnership of the Health and Social Care (HSC) organisations, academics, charities, cancer specialists and service users, working in collaboration to deliver safe and effective care, improve cancer clinical outcomes and to enhance patients and carers experience and quality of life.
NICaN does not deliver patient care, however, it works closely with service users, health professionals and managers to improve cancer services and to implement national NHS and local HSC strategies.
