Role

Are you an engaging individual who can help us to improve cancer outcomes and save more lives?

Cancer Research UK are working with partners to improve the prevention and earlier diagnosis of cancer. Primary Care professionals, especially GPs and their practice teams, have a crucial role to play in early diagnosis- but we know this is a complex area. We are also engaging with a range of Healthcare Professionals across the cancer pathway through our programme of Health Professional Engagement, to raise the profile of cancer, identify activities to improve uptake of bowel screening and cancer outcomes more generally and make change happen at a local level.

It’s a hugely exciting time to join the Health Professional Engagement Facilitation Team at Cancer Research UK, who are a key accelerator in driving forward our ambitious new Cancer Research UK organisational strategy.

An opportunity has arisen for a Health Professional Engagement Facilitator to join our team in the West of Scotland to:

  • Build effective relationships with and actively engage targeted GP practices within the locality to raise the awareness of the importance of early detection and screening
  • Work closely with GP Practices to encourage the effective use of GP Practice data and undertake interventions that support the earlier detection of cancer
  • Develop, plan and co-ordinate learning events for primary care professionals
  • Lead and co-ordinate practice improvement projects
  • Work closely with health professionals from primary & secondary care organisations to effect improvements in communication, service delivery and patient experience across the cancer pathway

To join us, we’re looking for self-motivated individuals with:

  • Experience of partnering with a range of stakeholders to influence and develop sustainable change
  • Experience of working with GPs
  • Strong understanding of primary care and NHS environments
  • Outstanding communication and interpersonal skills
  • Excellent organisational and project management skills

As the role is field based, you’ll also need to have tenacity and be comfortable working on your own as well as part of a team.

If this describes you, join our team as we work hard to beat cancer sooner.
