Your Cancer Pathway Support Guide

Your Cancer Pathway Support Guide
Your cancer pathway support guide was conceived and developed by the North Central London Cancer Alliance. It was co-designed with patients, carers and healthcare professionals, with support from Healthwatch Barnet and advocacy from Macmillan Cancer Support.
 
It is a comprehensive support guide for people who are referred on a suspected cancer pathway or who have been diagnosed with cancer. It provides key questions and signposts to information for people to ask of their health care team. The questions span the whole cancer pathway so patients can use it at any stage they need or come across it. The guide has been designed for use by patients and/or their carers.
 
The guide can be used online and notes can be kept on the pages using a unique personal link to access the page whenever it is needed. The guide can also be printed and used as a paper document, with handwritten notes, if preferred.
