Are you or have you been treated for cancer?

Are you or have you been treated for cancer in Shropshire, Telford or Powys?  If so the Living With and Beyond Cancer team at The Shrewsbury and Telford NHS Trust would like to hear from you.
This questionnaire is for anyone who has ever been diagnosed and treated for cancer in Shropshire, Telford and Wrekin and Powys. It has been developed by the Living With and Beyond Cancer Programme. 
The aim of this questionnaire is to ask people affected by cancer for their views about receiving an end of treatment summary. At the moment not all cancer patients and their GP’s receive Treatment Summaries and there is some variation in how useful these summaries are.A treatment summary is a document completed by a member of your team within the hospital after a significant phase of your treatment ends. It normally describes the treatment, potential side effects, and signs and symptoms of recurrence. The Treatment Summary aims to inform the GP and other primary care professionals of actions that need to be taken and who to contact with any questions or concerns. You are also offered a copy with the intention of improving your understanding of the treatment you have just received. It will also guide you for anything to look out for during your recovery. The Treatment Summary can also be shared with other health professionals and used to evidence the patient’s treatment, for example when claiming travel insurance.

Note this survey has 17 questions, most can be answered by tick box. Deadline for responses is Monday 12 November 2018.

Event description: Our AGM is open to all including non members.

Have you ever thought ” I always wanted to do….” Have you a bucket list of things you would like to do?

Our meeting features a presentation by Pen Turner.
‘Travels With a Penguin’ is not a talk about penguins. It’s not exactly a talk about travels either – at least it’s not the standard ‘where I went on my holidays’ type of talk. It’s the story of how I, an ordinary woman in my fifties, walked away from my comfortable life, gave up my job, sold my home, and set off to travel all the way around the world to do some of the things on my ‘wish list’ – all with only a small stuffed penguin for company. I talk about how I came to make this decision, some of the things I did on my travels, and the effect the journey had on me. I finish off by getting my audience to think about their own ‘wish lists’ and how they could turn some of those dreams into reality.” – Pen Turner

Free entry, light buffet lunch and refreshments.
