Experiences of ethnic minorities in cancer care: share your views

June 28, 2018

From brap, equality charity in Birmingham.
We would like to meet and speak with ethnic minority patients and carers who wish to share their experiences of their cancer journey. We will be visiting three parts of England to do this (Birmingham, London and Nottinghamshire) and we will be working with local community groups to find out more about issues people are experiencing.
The project will run between June and September 2018. We will be speaking to patients and carers. We will also be offering the opportunity for people’s experiences to be recorded or even shared on film if they feel comfortable to share their views in this way. In October and November 2018, we will producing a report and sharing the views of people by audio and film to help raise awareness of the experiences of ethnic minority patients and carers.
