Mount Vernon Cancer Services Review
A message from Mount Vernon Cancer Centre:
The NHS in the East of England and in North London is reviewing the Mount Vernon Cancer services.
Many of the buildings are not in a good state of repair, there are limited support facilities on the site, and concerns have been raised in relation to the long-term clinical sustainability of the Cancer Centre, which treats people from across Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, North West London and Thames Valley.
To decide what the best options might be for the future, we are looking at each cancer pathway and want to hear from patients and carers about what does and does not work well for you, and what your priorities would be.
We also need your input into decisions we need to make about the location of additional radiotherapy services for the North Hertfordshire and South Bedfordshire populations, and the way the whole service is organised.
We want to gather as many views as possible because we need to make the best possible changes.
There are many different ways you can get involved, and we will be adding more ways in the coming weeks. Due to the risks of Covid-19, we are not able to hold face to face workshops so many of our activities will take place online. Over the next few pages, you can find out what online events and focus groups are taking place. You can see all these events on the Mount Vernon Cancer Services Review website where you can book to attend an event through the Eventbrite booking system. The link is: https://mvccreview.nhs.uk/.
However, if you do not have access to a computer or smart phone, or aren't able to take part in online workshops for other reasons, we will also be offering other ways to get involved, so please keep an eye out.
