offers many challenges but also opportunities for NHS
organisations. We therefore want to develop a strong strategy
to further develop services for cancer patients and want people's
views. We want to know how they would like to see The
Christie in 2020 and hope that everyone participates in this
People will be asked a set of questions relating to The Christie
and potential additional services provided by The Christie, such as
'If you needed to be treated for cancer, what would improve your
experience at The Christie whilst you were a patient?' and 'Would
you want the opportunity to go on a patient trial where new
treatments are being offered?'.

consultation, please complete a questionnaire by visiting www.christie.nhs.uk. The
