Mount Vernon Cancer Services - Cancer Centre Model and Estate: Redesign Focus Groups

Community events
Saturday 14th November, 2020 - 18:30 to 20:00

About this event

An online focus group for people living in Hertfordshire, Bedfordshire, Buckinghamshire, North West London and Thames Valley, especially those who are being, or have been treated at Mount Vernon Cancer Centre, or their carers. An independent clinical review showed that to provide the best cancer care, the main cancer services needed to be located on a hospital site that had other services like intensive care. They cannot remain on the existing Mount Vernon site as this does not have the necessary services. This focus group will be to hear from patients what you think the advantages and disadvantages of different ways of doing this—such as moving the whole service onto a different site (not in central London) and creating a specialist cancer centre that can do some of the things patients currently have to travel into London for, or moving most of the service to a different site (not in central London), but leaving some services where they are, or on a different hospital site, or building a specialist cancer centre on a different site (not in central London), and developing some more local or mobile services across the area that can be run by the specialist centre. Each focus group will have a limited number of places so we can have a good discussion. There will be five model and estates focus groups but you only need to attend one as they will all be the same. They are arranged on different days and at different times, and use either Teams or Zoom so you can choose your preferred video conferencing platform.
