Researchers at University College London (UCL) would like to interview people affected by cancer who looked for support from formal and informal sources during COVID-19. 

This project aims to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on cancer patients’ experiences and support needs. Your participation will be fully confidential and anonymous. You'll have a online interview lasting approx. one hour with a researcher to discuss aspects of your cancer care and wellbeing. You'll be asked what support you had or looked for and the impact COVID-19 had on your cancer experience. Your participation will help health care professionals to better understand the impact of COVID-19 on people with cancer, in order to provide better support in future.

If you would be happy to discuss your experiences of surviving cancer during a global pandemic, or would like to ask questions to help you decide, please contact Elizabeth Haines on:

To thank participants for their engagement in this research, the researchers would like to offer each individual the opportunity to have £10 donated on their behalf to one of a choice of cancer charities.
