Healthwatch Norfolk cancer services engagement 2019/20
1 in 2 people in the UK born after 1960 will be diagnosed with some form of cancer during their lifetime, which is why it is important that patients have their say on how services are run.
Healthwatch Norfolk is seeking to partner with local charities, care providers and community and patient groups to share their experience of cancer services.
Specifically, they are seeking to understand people’s experience of GP appointments, diagnostic services, and information and support whilst waiting for treatment.
Alongside this, a separate survey regarding people’s uptake and experience of bowel, breast and cervical cancer screening services can be completed on the Healthwatch Norfolk website.
If you think you or your group could provide valuable insight around cancer services, get in touch with Healthwatch Norfolk’s engagement team by contacting 01953 856 029 or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. Information can be collected in a number of ways, including telephone interviews, email discussions, or group visits by members of Healthwatch Norfolk staff. So get in touch to have your say!
The information collected will be used to influence decisions made by Norfolk’s cancer commissioners, and circulated to those in charge of providing cancer services at the county’s hospitals and primary care networks.
