Patient Partners - patient and carer involvement
The Cancer Alliance works in partnership with people affected by cancer to transform patient outcomes and the quality of cancer care across north central London. We believe this kind of active input (patient and carer involvement) makes our cancer services better.
There are a number of ways you can get actively involved in working with us depending on your experiences and interests, including:
- helping us to decide our priorities for improving services
- assisting with specific projects that aim to transform care
- helping us to explain our cancer improvement work in understandable ways.
There are different ways people work with us, including:
- sitting on our governance or cancer expert reference groups that meet regularly
- coming to one-off meetings in an area of interest for you
How do I become a patient or carer representative?
We have an active Patient Partners Network which is a group of patient and care representatives who are working with us to make a real difference to people living with cancer in north central London. This network helps us understand what is important for patients and work with us to achieve this.
If you have personal experience of cancer as a patient or carer in North Central London, we would like to hear from you.
There are sometimes opportunities for patients and members of the public to get involved with us or other health organisations in different ways. You will find details about current opportunities here.
