There are many ways that people with experience of using cancer services - whether as a someone with cancer or as a carer or relative - can get involved in developing NHS cancer services for others.
No previous experience of group or committee membership is needed - your experience of using cancer services and ability to provide honest constructive comments is what all these groups need. Training is offered where appropriate. All groups are free to join and most refund travel costs.
To find out more about groups running in your area contact your local hospital or strategic clinical network. You can also contact cancer charities to find out more about campaigns that you can become involved in.
