Would you like to help improve cancer services in Buckinghamshire?
We are a group of volunteer patient, relative and carer representatives who work with healthcare professionals on standardising and improving local cancer services.
What is the Buckingham Cancer Patient Partnership group all about?
The group has been closely involved in the development of the cancer services which has led to the implementation of a more patient focussed service by healthcare professionals.
The group plays a part in monitoring the quality of cancer services and ensuring that high quality of care is available.
Our group meet alternately at Stoke Mandeville and Wycombe Hospitals every 3 months at lunchtime, to discuss the work and achievements of the Group in improving and monitoring cancer services across Bucks.
- Observing Cancer Clinics and recommending changes
- Advising on patient information leaflets to ensure user friendly
- Participating in the annual review of services
- Monitor the quality of patient services
- Responding to patient' survey outcomes
- Consulting with patients, relatives, or carers regarding cancer service waiting times, and pharmacy services
Interested — What next?
Whether you wish to attend as a present or past cancer patient, relative or carer, your experience is very valuable. You can be involved as little or as much as you would like, and you do not need to have any medical background. Things are discussed in layman's' terms.
We are always very glad for new members who are able to attend regularly, (factors like temporary illness or commitments may mean it is not always possible, and that we understand.)
Patients, relative and carers who have been involved with any type of cancer, who would like to know more, are invited to contact us for further information on: 01296 316954
