Have your say about cancer services

20th January 2015

A NHS trust wants to hear what cancer patients, their families and carers think about the care they received in hospital.

Jackie Brunton, Cancer Services Manager at Southport and Ormskirk Hospital NHS Trust, said: “We want to hear what was good and bad, how it made the patient feel and how it affected their experience of care.

“The event will centre on one-to-one conversations between patients and staff. To encourage as much openness as possible, the staff taking part won’t have been involved in the patients’ care.

“After the conversations, patients and staff will work together to establish any themes and develop ideas and suggestions for the Trust to consider.”

The event, which is supported by Macmillan Cancer Support, will be held on Thursday 5th February between 11am and 1.30pm at the Salvation Army, 65, Shakespeare Street, Southport.

A light lunch and refreshments will be provided. Parking expenses will be paid.
