Review our patient information
We like to involve people affected by pancreatic cancer in the development of our patient information. It is an important part of our Information Standard certification.
Our patient information is vital to help families and patients through their journey. We often require people to review our information and make sure that it is clear, informative and relevant.
What does it involve?
Volunteers will be sent draft versions of new publications for their comments. We will send you the information product and a document for you to give your comments on. We take this feedback very seriously and incorporate it into the final document.
We want our information products to suit you, so your feedback is crucial for us to know if what we are producing is information you would like to have, and that it is presented in the most helpful way.
What project information do we need reviewing?
We cannot give the exact time when we need this information reviewing, the information stated below is just a rough guide on what projects we have going on and estimates of when we would like your help for reviewing them.
If you would like any more information please email our information manager at or call 0303 040 1770 during office hours.
