Views sought on cancer care

North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust is seeking the views of patients, carers and family members who have been affected by cancer and treated at the West Cumberland Hospital in Whitehaven or Cumberland Infirmary in Carlisle.

The Trust wants everyone’s views and feedback about its services – what’s been good, what could be better and ways we can improve the care we give to our patients. This is a unique opportunity to help shape the future of cancer services at the Trust.

The meeting will take place in the Education Centre at the Cumberland Infirmary, Carlisle on Thursday 6 April, starting at 6pm.

Fraser Cant, associate chief operating officer at North Cumbria University Hospitals NHS Trust, said: “The Trust is improving its cancer services all the time, waiting list times are reducing and we have been working with our colleagues at Newcastle Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust as part of a Cancer Alliance in order to ensure that radiotherapy, chemotherapy and oncology services can be delivered locally.

“We will also benefit from a major national investment in LINAC radiotherapy machines to further improve cancer patient treatment but we know we can always do more to help our patients. We want to hear from as many people as we can to help shape the future of cancer service at the Trust.”
