Prior to 2016, the CSP had been run by a Chairperson. The Terms of Reference (ToR) was amended in May 2016 to formalise the Chair position and to appoint a Treasurer to help run the group and access funding when required. In the 3 subsequent years, Cancer Services Partnership expanded to include representatives from support groups and charities, as well as the original patients, families and carers.
With the increasing membership, by 2019, the group needed to become more formalised so the CSP called its first AGM in May 2019 and will continue to hold an annual AGM.
To formalise the CSP further, an EGM was called in September 2020 to approve the new CSP Constitution document and to appoint CSP Committee Members to formally govern the group. These proposals and others were agreed at the EGM in the presence of a representative from HHFT.
