Cancer workshop supports people to move forward together

September/October 2019

The session brought together patients, those Living With and Beyond Cancer (LWBC), carers, patient-advocates, health care providers and clinicians to exchange knowledge and ideas of how we can improve cancer services in the following areas:

-Lung cancer pathway development
-Oesophago-gastric cancer pathway development
-Prostate cancer pathway development and follow up
-Colorectal cancer pathway development and follow up
-Breast follow up
-Vague symptoms clinic
-Cancer care navigators

The aim was to ensure that patients, relatives, carers and the public, along with the workforce continue to be actively involved in the design, delivery and assessment of Cancer services, in order to shape services and improve health.
