Dr Jane Winter has led the implementation of a Macmillan supported patient triggered follow up (PTFU) for colorectal cancer| patients at University Hospital Southampton.
From first concepts advocated by the National Cancer Survivorship Initiative| she has grasped and developed the vision of PTFU, particularly in articulating to others how this could be used to enhance person-centred care and deliver a range of services at the most appropriate time and place, with the patient at the centre of the planning.

Erin Bolton in association with Catherine Hargreaves has developed an innovative education tool in the form of a play which demonstrates the importance of the use of end of life care tools and the benefit of holding discussions with loved ones before death.
This short play is humorous, informative and has real impact on the audience. Macmillan supported the production of this play on DVD for use as a national teaching aid for end of life care facilitators. Performance of the play to different audiences, live or over the media and via the CD has raised awareness of key issues in relation to end of life and end of life care amongst both the public and care professionals.
