User Involvement

Help us to improve cancer services for people in Greater Manchester by sharing your experiences

We're committed to ensuring that the voices of people affected by cancer are at the heart of service improvements. So if you are a patient, family member, carer or friend, we would love to hear from you. By sharing your experiences and opinions, you can help make sure that the care provided is what people really need. There are lots of different ways to get involved, and you can give as much or as little time as you would like. Whether you are taking surveys, reviewing leaflets, helping develop training programmes for doctors and nurses, or acting as a patient representative at board meetings, your actions will make a big difference.

Your Voice

In 2022, we ran an independent review of our programme to help us ensure that patient and public voices remain at the centre of shaping our work. We heard from hundreds of people including patients and healthcare professionals. You can read the final report here.
