Oncology Services Transformation - 'Have your say' community meetings

Date and time: 
7 August, 2018 - 11:00 - 12:30
Organisation running this event: 
Health and Social Care NI
Description of event: 
All Trusts in Northern Ireland are working together to test new ways of working that will improve how we deliver our services and ensure that the patient is at the centre of everything we do. This will include exploring opportunities for more locally delivered chemotherapy services and improving patient experience, for example by reducing time to receive treatment and developing our staff to provide the best care possible. We want to know what matters to you. We would like to hear the views of people in Northern Ireland on how we can improve Cancer Services. We would like to focus on your experience of diagnosis, chemotherapy and radiotherapy treatment. (We are not seeking feedback on treatment for blood cancers, or treatment through surgery at this time). Please come along to our community engagement events in your local areas.

Review of Breast Assessment Services

Date and time: 
9 August, 2017 - 15:15 - 16:15
Organisation running this event: 
Health and Social Care Board and Public Health Agency - Western Trust
Description of event: 
Breast Assessment services have been encountering ongoing challenges as a result of increasing numbers of referrals and ongoing workforce shortages within radiology. The Clinical teams delivering the service have agreed that the current service model is not sustainable and that there is a need to reconfigure the service across fewer sites in order to create more sustainable team. This change relates to assessment only. Treatment will not be impacted. Staff from the Health and Social Care Board and Public Health Agency will attend to share work that has been ongoing to define a range of possible options for the future configuration of the assessment service and the criteria which will be used to appraise those options. Your views will be vital in helping to shape the design of the future service model.
