Let's Talk Cancer
Cancer patients and their loved ones are being given a chance to suggest changes to cancer care in Wales in a new project being launched today by the Institute of Welsh Affairs (IWA).
The ‘Let’s talk cancer’ project, hosted for six weeks on letstalkcancer.wales, will ask you to share your experiences online and suggest improvements to cancer care.
“Through our experiences, albeit reluctantly, we have become experts” said one former cancer patient.
A panel of experts has been put together to reply to patient’s stories and suggest changes for the NHS to consider.
‘This is about putting the power into the hands of those who know what they’re talking about. Not the scientists, the policy makers, the politicians – but rather the people who are living with it’ IWA Director Lee Waters said.
‘Let’s talk cancer’ is a partnership between the IWA, Tenovus Cancer Care and the Jane Hodge Foundation.
