West Essex residents are invited to attend a cancer conference, led by the Princess Alexandra Hospital Trust’s Patient Panel and West Essex Clinical Commissioning Group (WECCG).
Following the national Be Clear on Cancer campaign, residents in Essex and Hertfordshire can be assured that their local hospital provides a top class service, after Princess Alexandra Hospital topped trusts nationwide to reach No 1 for cancer treatment waiting times.
The great performance is echoed by patients themselves who also rate their experience of the service highly. In the most recent National Cancer Patient Experience Survey, improvements were seen in 33 out of 50 questions.
With this recent first class rating awarded to The Princess Alexandra Hospital NHS Trust, there is no better time to get involved.
If you, a friend, or relative have experienced cancer at any stage, then we would really value your insight and contribution to this event. There will be opportunities to take part in workshops focusing on practical topics such as managing finances and balancing work alongside cancer treatment.
This cancer conference first, also supported by Macmillan Cancer Support, will focus on existing cancer services and discussions on practical steps that can be taken to improve patient care and experiences in this area.
The day will include Q&A sessions, workshops and a complimentary lunch for all attendees. Free parking will also be available onsite.
The conference will take place at the Harlow Leisurezone Resource Centre, CM20 3DT, on Thursday 29 March 2018 from 10am-3.30pm.
