Cancer Patients With Learning Disabilities Sought

November 4, 2021

Charities are seeking volunteers for a research project looking into the experiences of people living with learning disabilities and cancer.

Macmillan Cancer Support and Midland Mencap have launched the joint project in Birmingham and North Warwickshire.

The project, due to conclude next spring, hopes to better understand patients’ experiences and find out how services can be improved.

Researchers are looking to speak to patients as well as families and carers who would be happy to share their experiences for the project.Quote Message: This project will give us an invaluable insight into the experiences of people with learning disabilities and cancer, and ultimately help us achieve better experiences for them, and help us improve the personalised care and support we offer.” from Hannah Sanderson Macmillan Cancer Support
