Calling all cancer professionals - will you share your story of delivering care in the second wave?
As we head into the next phase of our Forgotten 'C' campaign, it is more important than ever that we highlight the stories and experiences of our cancer workforce during the pandemic. Macmillan are continuing to campaign for urgent action from UK governments to ring-fence cancer services and call for long term investment to meet the challenges ahead.
We know that our healthcare professionals have faced unimaginable challenges this year and through it all, have done everything they can to keep cancer services running. Macmillan professionals have adapted, embedding innovations along the way, and above all they have shown a commitment to providing the best care for their patients.
Today, we’re asking you to add your experiences to our Macmillan Storybook, so that we can raise the profile of professionals working through the pandemic. It is these stories that urgently need to be highlighted in the run up to the publication of the Spending Review in England on Weds 25th November, so we can show what working in the second wave of the pandemic has really been like.
The Macmillan Storybook is a platform for people affected by cancer to share their story as part of our Forgotten ‘C’ campaign, so the campaign continues to represent the voices that need us the most. We understand that some may feel more comfortable sharing their story anonymously - if so, please add your name as 'Anonymous' and choose a Macmillan icon instead of a photo of you.
Stories shared on the Storybook before Monday 23rd November may be featured on our Macmillan social media accounts and shared with campaigners through our network in the run up to the Spending Review on 25th Nov and afterwards, but we will contact you for permission before doing so.
