PLANETS have been contacted by the ‘Right By You Project’ who are looking for patient volunteers. They are looking into the feeling that cancer care provided by GP practices and hospitals sometimes does not always feel joined up and people sometimes don’t always get the support on the things that matter to them.

 

Local cancer services across Dorset, Hampshire and the Isle of Wight are working together to improve this through a more supportive and personalised approach to cancer services. The ‘Right by You’ project’s ambition is to provide people living with cancer, their family, carers and friends with support for the things that are most important to them. These needs will be identified by the person and their supporters and could cover any aspect of life affected by cancer, from diagnosis through treatment and beyond.

 

This project will test new ways to have conversations with people about their needs, and aims to join up services provided by GPs, hospitals, social services and voluntary/ community services to ensure support is given in the right way at the right time.
