They involve users in their planning and review; and have the active engagement of all the multidisciplinary team leads from the service providers across the North East and North Cumbria.
The EAG act as a group to provide expert clinical advice to commissioners and others to influence best possible practice across the region.

The EAG aims to:
• agree a set of clinical guidelines and patient pathways to support the delivery of high quality equitable services across the region
• Use available data to consider where there may be unwarranted variation and recommend corrective action where necessary
• use service evaluations by patients and carers to make improvements
• monitor progress on meeting national cancer standards and ensure improvements are implemented
• review and discuss identified risks/untoward incidents to ensure learning is spread
• agree a common approach to research and service development.
