Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy (SACT) EAG

The Systemic Anti-Cancer Therapy (SACT) EAG was set up to act as an expert consultative body for the clinical network on issues related to the delivery of SACT across the West Midlands. The SACT EAG currently meet on a bi-monthly basis with the main initial aim of developing supportive care guidelines. Several workshop days have been held to enable thorough discussion and analysis of literature to support the development of these guidelines, which are now close to completion. The group also discuss any major issues currently facing SACT services in the West Midlands, along with cancer targets and dissemination of ideas and evidence based current best practice.

The current chair of the group is Dr Vicky Kunene, Consultant Oncologist University Hospital Birmingham
