Network Structure

The network is headed by a Network Board, comprising: co-Chairs; the Chief Executives of the six NHS Health Boards currently providing children and young people’s cancer services; the National Clinical Director and Network Manager. Stakeholder representation includes: the Scottish Government; Nursing; the third sector (charities) and patients and/or parent representation.

The MSN CYPC Board is responsible for the strategic direction of the network and is directly accountable to the Scottish Government. The Board, the Clinical Governanace Group and the Executive Group work closely together to try achieve the ambitions set out in our Cancer Strategy. There are also a number of workstreams and professional reference groups that have representation from the Scottish Health Boards.

Our current Cancer Strategy was launched in September 2021 which sets out our priorities for the next 5 years; MSN CYPC Cancer Strategy 2021-2026

Our previous publication was the Cancer Plan Cancer Plan for Children and Young People in Scotland 2016 - 2019, which was launched in February 2016.
