Cancer Care Co-ordinator and Faster Diagnosis Easy Read Resources

North East & Cumbria Learning Disability Network, Be Cancer Aware and the Easy Information Service, along with experts with lived experience and colleagues from South Tees and the Northern Centre for Cancer Care – Oncology have co-designed easy read, accessible patient information for Faster Diagnosis pathways.

The easy read resources are to support people in understanding what a rapid diagnosis service is and the role of the cancer care co-ordinator.

The resources can be adapted by Trusts across the region to fit local services and additional photos have been provided to help with this.
