The Cancer Services Patient and Carer Group at Queen Elizabeth Hospital, Kings Lynn are reaching out to people affected by cancer, asking them to share their experiences in order to improve cancer care across the region.
The group are encouraging patients, carers and health professionals to join them on Tuesday 24th November, 2.00pm-4.30pm at the Norfolk Hospice, Tapping House, Hillington to share their thoughts and ideas for improving future cancer care.
People with an experience of cancer are invited to join if they are curious to find out more about the group, want to ‘give something back’ to the community or wish to influence the way cancer services are developed locally.
Vicky Mitchell and Alexis Mack, managers of the Macmillan Cancer Information and Support Service at QEHKL said, “We are passionate about continuous improvement of our service and others so that we meet the needs of the people we serve. The most effective way of doing that is to listen to the experts – our patients and those that care for them. We hope to see you on the 24th November 2015.”
Rukshana Kapasi, Senior Macmillan Development Manager, added: “Ensuring that people’s views are heard at all levels and across all parts of the healthcare system is vital for creating and delivering better health and care services. It ensures that services are patient-centred and take account of patients’ views and preferences. So I would urge people affected by cancer to get involved in this exciting opportunity.”
