Excellent Workshop – making things better for people with cancer.

A great session took place on the 7th of December that saw people with a learning disability, carers and health professionals come together to help to look at the needs of people who have cancer.

We had a great opportunity to work with Macmillan to develop an easy read version of the holistic needs assessment.

Macmillan are working on the ideas we shared today and we will see the results in the new year.
