Yorkshire Cancer Patient Forum

The Yorkshire Cancer Patient Forum is a group of people who have been directly affected by cancer – patients, carers, friends and family – and those working with or within cancer services. Our aim is to enable the views and experiences of people affected by cancer to be heard and used to improve the quality of cancer care in the Yorkshire and Humber area. We do this by working in a positive partnership with local health care teams, Cancer Alliances and voluntary and community sector organisations.

People don’t need any specific skills or experiences to be involved with the Forum, as we believe that people affected by cancer are experts from their own experience. We just need you to come and help us to make a difference for others in our region.
