RADIOTHERAPY patients across Norfolk and Waveney are being urged to help shape the region's future provision.

Health bosses at NHS Great Yarmouth and Waveney, NHS Norfolk and the Anglia Cancer Network want patients to voice their views at a series of public meetings.

Maggie Parsons, cancer commissioning manager at NHS Yarmouth and Waveney, said: “This will be your opportunity to participate in the decision process, shaping how radiotherapy services in Norfolk, Yarmouth and Waveney will look in the future.

“We want to know how people made the decision on having radiotherapy, how far they had to travel, whether the travel time affected that decision, what their doctor told them and whether they considered other treatments.”

Kathryn Griffiths, commissioning manager at NHS Norfolk, said: “It is absolutely vital to us that we understand more about the experiences of patients who have radiotherapy treatment to enable us to develop and further improve the service we provide.”

The meetings will be held at the Innovations Centre, 39 Brunel Way in Thetford on January 18 from 6pm to 8pm, the Supper Room at Yarmouth town hall from 10.30am to 12,30pm on January 20, The Big C, Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital on January 28 between 10.30am and 12.30pm, Holt's Bayfield Hall on January 30 from 10.30am to 12.30pm, the Friends' Meeting House in 15 Smallgate, Beccles between 2.30pm and 4.30pm on February 1 and from 2.30pm to 4.30pm at Saint Augustine's Centre, 37 Columbia Way, Kings Lynn on February 3.
