Mac Voice, the magazine for Macmillan professionals: Summer 2015
Info For Me is an innovative online resource managed by NHS 24 and developed with Macmillan
Info For Me will allow people in Scotland to find cancer information in a way that suits them. They will be able to access detailed information on different cancers, make their own customised cancer leaflet, find support groups and more.
Info For Me is part of the Cancer Zone section of the NHS Inform website. The whole Cancer Zone section is currently being revamped and improved, to take into account the views of people affected by cancer and health professionals.
By introducing Info For Me across the Cancer Zone, individuals will be able to personalise information they find across the whole site. It will provide an online platform where people can find and store information quickly and easily, and signpost them to a range of holistic, national and local services. Through this signposting, it’s hoped the website will introduce people to support avenues they may not have considered previously.
While giving people access to online personalised information, the new website will also link up with face-to-face and telephone services, giving all-round access to better, more personalised information and support.
It is anticipated that the new Cancer Zone, featuring Info For Me, will be ready for initial user testing across Scotland from June 2015 through to the end of December 2015. Visit nhsinform.co.uk/cancer/infoforme for more information.
