Come and have afternoon tea and share your experiences of local cancer services

People in Telford and Wrekin, as well as Shropshire, are being asked to share their experiences of local cancer services at a special afternoon tea.

Anyone who's been affected by cancer, whether that's directly or as a family member or friend of someone who has received a diagnosis is welcome to attend The Wakes, Oakengates on Tuesday 27 March 2018 with the Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire Cancer Group. 

Volunteers whose role is related to cancer services are also welcome to share their views and experiences.

Dr Jo Leahy, GP and Chair of Telford and Wrekin CCG, said: "One in two people will be affected by cancer at some point in their life, so we want to make sure that our local services are providing people with the support they need.

"It's also really important that we're talking about cancer, whether that be the early signs and symptoms, or helping each other through treatment and recovery ."

Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire Cancer Group comprised of NHS Telford and Wrekin Clinical Commissioning Group (CCG), NHS Shropshire CCG, Shrewsbury and Telford Hospitals NHS Trust, Telford and Wrekin and Shropshire Councils, Macmillan Cancer Support and Cancer Research UK.
