Northumbria Cancer Patient and Carer Group meeting

The Northumbria Cancer Patient and Carer Group would like your help to make cancer services for patients and carers in Northumberland and North Tyneside better. Come and help to get the patient voice heard and make a real difference.

Meetings are held every four to six weeks at Wansbeck, Hexham or North Tyneside general hospitals. The group aims to:

• represent patient and carer views
• work with other organisations
• liaise with health professionals
• talk with local cancer support groups
• carry out five senses surveys from a patient carer perspective on areas used by cancer patients during their cancer journey
• represent the cancer patient voice across Northumberland and North Tyneside
• suggest ways of improving services
• review the patient comments given on the national patient survey and take forward any items where we feel we can help make an improvement.

The next Northumbria Cancer Patient and Carer Support Group meeting takes place on Tuesday 9 January at Wansbeck General Hospital. For further information contact Chris Walker on 07817515265 or email
