Share your experiences of accessing cancer treatment

If you’ve had cancer treatment, or can speak on behalf of someone who has, your perspective and experiences could help Cancer Research UK to tackle some of the issues on access to treatment. 

We’re holding workshops to bring people with a personal experience of cancer treatment together, and discuss people’s views, feelings and experiences to inform our strategy on access to treatments. 

Come along to one of our workshops and help ensure that our work will make the biggest difference for cancer patients.

Find out more and register your interest.

Evening workshop: Wednesday 16 August

Daytime workshop: Monday 21 August

Location: Angel, London

Deadline: Wednesday 9 August

Payment and expenses: All reasonable expenses will be reimbursed and £50 honorarium offered

Hi Helen,

What is the scope of these workshops - UK-wide or specific to London? I hope you get plenty of attendees either way.

Thanks

Dave

Thank you davek!

I checked in with the team running these workshops and they've come back to me with a response to your question: 

Unfortunately we’re working with some really ambitious timelines so having to hold both workshops in London. We’re also doing a mini-workshop focussing on travel to treatment as part of an existing event in Southampton. You can find out more here: Your Involvement Training.

We’re gutted not to be able to get out around the country more but to ensure that people can be involved that can’t travel to London or make the date, we’re offering phone interviews and people can share their experience via a survey.

I hope that helps and thank you once again for the positive wishes,

Helen
