A message from our Research and Evaluation Team

Thank you so much to all those clients who have already helped feed into our service development work looking at whether it would be helpful for people with cancer to have support early after diagnosis, before their treatment starts.

If you haven’t already given any feedback, and you were diagnosed recently with cancer (in the last year to two), please help by sharing your thoughts and experiences.

We expect it to take around 10 minutes to complete. The closing date for responses is midnight on Sunday 23rd May 2021.

Thank you for your support. Complete Anonymous Survey
