Urogology Network Site Specific Group (NSSG)

The Urology NSSG has responsibility, delegated by the Cancer Board, for ensuring the co-ordination of the cancer pathway and consistency of care for the relevant client group within the cancer network.

The NSSG provides advice in respect of all significant service changes, eg Improving Outcomes Guidance (IOG) particularly if there are financial consequences, and will make recommendations to the Cancer Board.  The NSSG has a key role in developing plans to implement IOG, monitoring the implementation of the agreed IOG action plans, raising concerns and areas of risk to the Board via the agreed governance arrangements.
