Young people’s and carer’s views on the cancer services they receive

Patient and public involvement is key to understanding how cancer services can be improved and developed. This article reports on user and carer involvement in a project looking at services for teenagers and young adults in the Central South Coast Cancer Network. The project aimed to identify the healthcare and support needs of young people with cancer between the ages of 13 - 25, to gather evidence of how these needs were currently being met, and to make recommendations for the future provision of cancer services for young people.
