Becoming a member
Becoming a member
If you have been affected by cancer and have an interest in influencing and improving cancer services in North Wales, you may wish to consider becoming a member of the Patient Forum.
Everyone will bring something different to the Patient Forum, but a member will generally be someone:
- With personal experience of using cancer services, as a patient, relative or friend
- Willing to discuss issues affecting cancer patients and carers and to share experiences in order to improve services for others
- Capable of looking at emotive or controversial issues in a fair and unbiased way
- Willing to play an active role in the work of the group
- Willing to conform to our code of conduct
- We strive to maintain a membership which includes people from communities throughout North Wales. We are committed to providing equal opportunities for everyone to become involved regardless of age, sex, religion, disability, ethnic origin or status.
For more information……..
We will be very happy to talk to you about what becoming a member might involve and provide the necessary information to help you decide whether you would like to join us. We encourage people to come along to one of our meetings to talk to other members and get a feel for the way we work. You might like to view our ‘Welcome Pack’ which includes our code of conduct and group guidelines.
Even if you would prefer not to become a member, you can still help us by telling us Your Views of cancer care in North Wales. If you have been affected by cancer, we would really like to hear about your experiences – things that worked well and things that could have been better.
If you would like more information or would like to speak to someone about our Forum, please get in touch...
