Have you been treated for prostate cancer? There’s still time to help develop this prostate cancer support tool.

25/05/2017

The NHS in South West London are looking for men who have been treated for prostate cancer, or their carers, who could join a focus group to help improve services for the future. If you are interested, you need to respond by tomorrow, 26th May by emailing Clare Thomas on: Clare.thomas@swlondon.nhs.uk or calling her on 0203 458 5231.

If you would like more detail then here is what they say about their project:

"Have you been treated for prostate cancer? 

Help us to develop a ‘tool’ that will give people more control after they’ve finished their treatment. 

Come to our focus group to find out more! 

What’s this all about?

We want to help people have more control of their condition once they’ve finished their treatment for prostate cancer.  With your help – we’d like to develop a ‘tool’ or ‘passport’ which will help people to record their ‘PSA’ (prostate specific antigen) levels and know when to seek further help. It will also provide useful information.  

Why should I get involved?  

It will help support people to be more in control following treatment. You’ll receive a £30 voucher to say thanks and be reimbursed for out of pocket expenses. It will take less than 3 hours of your time. 

Who can get involved?  

Men who have been treated for prostate cancer, or their carers. 

When will this happen?

The focus group is likely to take place at 120 The Broadway in Wimbledon and will take around three hours. The date of the focus group is still to be confirmed – but we’re hoping to hold it in June 2017.   

To find out more…

If this is something you would like to get involved with, please contact: Clare Thomas - Engagement Manager   Clare.thomas@swlondon.nhs.uk   0203 458 5231

Please contact Clare with your details by Friday 26th May 2017."
