Full Description

Background information:

Following Vicky Phelan’s court case, the significant revelations related to the CervicalCheck screening programme and subsequent ongoing official enquiries and investigations, Stephan Teap and Vicky Phelan (representing a group of the women affected by the controversy) approached the Marie Keating Foundation, the Irish Cancer Society and the Irish Patient Association to establish a structured patient group to support these women and their families.

The primary objective of the CervicalCheck Patient Support Group (CCPSG) is to meet the needs of those patients directly affected by the CervicalCheck controversy and their next of kin by providing information, advice and support in a structured and confidential manner. It will provide expertise and advice to women in relation to clinical trials as well as new and emerging treatment options including immunotherapy drugs. The Group will act as a voice for all those affected by the current crisis as well other women diagnosed with cervical cancer in the future and those previously diagnosed but not directly affected by screening issues.

The Role:

The CCPSG is now looking for a Co-ordinator to oversee its establishment. In this inspirational role, you will provide day-to-day administration, information and support. You will also develop a three year plan to coordinate activities and collate, update and distribute relevant information to various parties.

If you are practical and empathetic with the emotional intelligence and resilience to take on this challenging new opportunity, we would love to hear from you.
