Principles and Guidance – Key Workers for Cancer Patients

It is well worth having a look at this new policy which has been implemented from September 2014.  You will be aware that in April 2011 a commitment was made by the Welsh Government that all Cancer patients should have an identified Key Worker.  The Principles and Guidance document (follow the link) has now been produced following consultation with Health Boards, Velindre NHS Trust, members of the Cancer Implementation Group (CIG), cancer patients and carers. The document was signed off by the CIG on 17th September. The expectation of the Group is through the implementation of these Principles we can now ensure greater consistency in the support to individuals provided by Key Workers.
