Patient and Family Experience

A crucial aspect of service development within the ODN is the active involvement and engagement with patients, families and members of the public to plan, manage and design the service development. The ODN intends to listen to patients and families lived experiences and map out the patient pathways.

We will be working with patient experience leads within trusts to hear about patient and family feedback.

Since the network was established in 2022, we have used any existing forums, led patient & family workshops and the Under 16 Cancer Patient Experience Survey (U16CPES) to ensure the experience and viewpoints are at the heart of the network.

We Would Love to Hear From You

We would love to hear directly from you so please contact us if you wish to talk about your experience, suggest improvements, or be signposted to support services.
