Research Participant Opportunity

There has been a new self-help book published which includes strategies for coping with some of the physical and psychological effects of cancer. Cardiff University is undertaking research on how this book is experienced by people who have had a diagnosis of cancer. Attached above is the information on the book and the research request for participants. If you would like to be involved, please contact them directly.

New Lockdown - new issues?

We are now well into the new national lockdown and I am sure things are wearing a bit thin for many of us. However for people who have had a cancer diagnosis this can be a particularly worrying time. At Macmillan Cancer Support we try to keep aware of what is happening nationally regarding access to NHS services so that we can influence decision makers on where to focus resources.

We are looking to understand where there have been disruption to services, cancellation of treatments or (in particular) cancellation of operations and the impact this is having in this new lockdown. We are also interested in hearing from people who are again shielding and how this might be different from the first lockdown.

If you know of people who may be able to help with this, as the Engagement Lead for Surrey and Sussex, I would the person to tell. Please do share this with your members, and if there are people interested and willing to have a chat with me, do give them my email address mwitcomb@macmillan.org.uk and I can arrange to have a chat with them. I can then, with their permission, share this information with the Influencing Team. All the information would be anonymised.
