Brief Description of Work: The Inclusion Department works across a number of programmes to engage with people living with cancer, to tackle a range of inequalities and unmet needs they experience. The Department’s projects centre on: quality of patient experience, including the relationship between patients and professionals; equality of voice, including those from frequently ignored communities; and ability to self-manage, including access to involvement, patient leadership, or peer support activities.
