Health inequalities impact many patients across Greater Manchester and these can take many forms. We know there is more we can do to ensure all of our patients are able to have better outcomes and experiences, no matter who they are, where they live and which cancer they have.
This award is for a team or project that is helping to reduce inequalities within cancer in Greater Manchester. This could be through tailored engagement work with communities to bust myths or raise awareness of symptoms, finding new ways to tackle variation in screening uptake or service provision or using data to reduce health inequalities, amongst many other things.
Our judges will be looking for:
- A clear description of the problem and how the team or project has set to address it
- Evidence of impact on reducing inequality, through use of qualitative and quantitative data
- Evidence of co-production, working with people affected
- The team or project must be working within cancer services for the Greater Manchester population
