Neil's Weekly Blog! #3

on Monday, 23 March 2015.

daffsSpring as well and truly sprung  as you can see by our lovely Daffodil display at Slynedales!

Last week we were at the National Cancer Conference which was a great learning opportunity for our organisation. One key message for me was definitely  “No decisions  should be made about services without proper influence of patients”. This really rings a chime to us at CancerCare as we look at better ways of capturing the experience of our clients in order to develop existing and potentially new services to make sure  we are doing our bit locally.

On Wednesday I met up with a lovely lady called Amanda who has recently set up a small charity called Xeed who support  individuals with long term health conditions. Their focus is to help people find work when they are ready to go back into the workplace. We are confident we could consider some cross-referrals’ if appropriate and maybe even offer them a home for their drop in at Kendal. 

Until next week! Neil :)
