Cervical cancer patient experience survey- Update

Hi all

I wanted to give you an update about the Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust survey on the cervical cancer patient journey. The survey will help us to understand more about the cervical cancer patient experience including diagnosis, treatment and care.

We have already recruited 30 women from across the UK to take part in the survey and telephone interviews will be starting next week. However, we are ideally looking for a total of 50 women to provide their experiences of their cervical cancer diagnosis, treatment and care.

We are now looking for any and all of the following cervical cancer patients (patients need to have been diagnosed within the last two years):

- Women who are from Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic communities (of any stage or age)
- Women that have had a diagnosis of stage 2 or more
- Women in their 60s and 70s (any stage)

We really want to get a diverse population for our study and the information we gather from the interviews will be used to develop new services; improve services where this needed; influence policy makers; and help us to focus training and development of health care professionals who work with women affected by cervical cancer.

If you are interested in taking part in the study it would be great to hear from you. To find out more and register interest: contact Emma Moore from Quality Health on: emma.moore@quality-health.co.uk or telephone 01246 858873

Thank you so much
