User Involvement

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.

You can help Greater Manchester Cancer Alliance to improve cancer services

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

We’re running an independent review to help us ensure that patient and public voices remain at the centre of shaping our work, and we’d love to hear your views.
