Co-production acknowledges that people with ‘lived experience’ of a particular condition, are often best placed to advise on what support and services will make a positive difference to their lives.
The Macmillan Mental Health Cancer Care project is looking for people interested in working alongside the Project Lead to produce recommendations to improve the experience of people living with a mental health condition and affected by cancer. This is an exciting new opportunity to help improve future experiences
The recommendations to be developed will be focussed on three areas:
- Referral processes - what information is shared at referral and what happens to it
- Training and development – what are the gaps in cancer and mental health services regarding cancer and mental health awareness. Identification of current training provision available
- Information – critically analyse written information offered to patients on diagnosis. Offer suggestions for improvements to make written information more accessible
To support the Macmillan Mental Health Cancer Care Project Lead to develop recommendations to improve the experience of people living with mental health conditions and affected by cancer.
