Bolton Cancer Patients and Carers Consultative Group are launching a recruitment drive to secure new members. The Group which is spear-heading the campaign for a Cancer Information and Support Centre at the Royal Bolton Hospital and recently held a Cancer Listening Event is keen to attract additional members so its work can be informed and driven by the broadest possible range of experiences and opinions.
Anyone affected by cancer as a patient or carer, currently or in the past is eligible to join the Group, which meets every other month.
Karen Elliott, Chair of the Group said: ‘Patients and their families / carers are uniquely placed to identify issues which impact on the patient / carer experience and help encourage Healthcare Services to ensure that the treatment, care and support of cancer patients from Bolton, their families or carers is patient-centred, holistic, of high quality, equable, efficient and effective. User engagement and involvement has been high on the agenda for some time now and we want this to be truly meaningful here in Bolton. Together we can make a difference.’
For an informal discussion Karen can be contacted on 01204 595562 / 07773 164235. The Group next meet on 27th March at 5.30pm in Bolton Hospice, Chorley New Road.
