Cancer Campaigning Group Survey – what does integrated care mean to you?
Pancreatic Cancer Action is a member of the Cancer Campaigning Group (CCG), a coalition of around 50 charities who are campaigning for better services for people with cancer and their families. We are conducting a project looking at what ‘integrated care’ means to people living with cancer and their carers.
Integrated care means having a seamless, well co-ordinated experience, across GP, hospital, and social services. In practical terms, it can mean things like your GP knowing what stage of treatment you are at, always seeing the same hospital doctor or specialist nurse, appointments and test results being provided quickly, and not having to keep explaining the same things to different people.
We are asking people living with cancer, or their carers, to fill in this survey of nine questions to help us understand what matters most to you. By filling in this questionnaire, you will help us to make sure that the voices of people living with cancer and their carers are heard as the Government works to make integrated care a reality. The findings of the survey will help inform the messaging of the CCG as the group engages with the Government on the issue.
The survey can be filled in here: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/CCGintegration.
Thank you for your time. The survey will be open until Friday 25 May. The survey findings will be posted on www.cancercampaigninggroup.org.uk in the summer.
