Ways to get involved
Wessex Voices and Wessex Cancer Alliance recognises people affected by cancer are our partners in shaping local cancer services and support. How people want to get involved will vary so we want to offer different ways of doing this.
There are different ways to get involved depending on what you would like to do. People have shared their experiences in a variety of ways:
Our Patient, Carer and Public Involvement Network involves a diverse range of people from across Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight. Working together with the Wessex Cancer Alliance, members volunteer to get involved in plans to improve cancer services and support for our residents, ranging from how to keep people well; making sure more people get an early diagnosis of cancer to give them a chance of better outcomes; to improving people’s care and support through and beyond their treatment.
Anyone affected by cancer can join at any time, including patients, carers, family members and anyone else who is interested in participating. It’s for people from all parts of Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight and for people of all ages and experiences, especially those with diverse ethnic and cultural backgrounds.
If you would like to get involved, please complete this online form. We also have information about the Network and a joining form in Easy Read.
