CANCER patients and their carers are being asked to help shape the service to improve it for future users.

The cancer service, based at Great Western Hospital, benefits from the active involvement of those who have been treated at the hospital as well as those who support them - and more people who want to take part are always welcome.

Free information sessions are being held on February 8 and March 9 and will cover the basic structure of cancer services in the NHS. Both sessions will take place at Nuffield Orthopaedic centre, Windmill Road, Headington, Oxford.
