Central Nottinghamshire Cancer Patient and Carer Forum

photo of the cancer patient and carer forumWho we are

  • A voice for people living with cancer 
  • We are a local group of patients and carers who have experience of living with cancer
  • We aim to work in partnership with local health, social and voluntary professionals to improve cancer services

What we do

  • We seek to co-ordinate and promote the views of people and their families living with cancer
  • We advise the Health Service about cancer care in Central Notts from the users and carers point of view
  • We link with and support local and national self help groups and cancer charities
  • We meet regularly with professionals to discuss issues of importance to people living with cancer
  • We communicate directly with the Nottingham Cancer Centre and Sherwood Forest Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust
  • We raise public awareness of cancer symptoms and prevention
  • We contribute to public consultations on cancer issues
  •  

However we are not a support group or complaints service.

You can be involved in many ways, for example you can:

  • Tell us your views on ways of improving cancer services
  • Join a network of people on our mailing list and comment on issues we are discussing
  • Act as a link between self help groups and the Forum
  • Join the forum
