Much has been achieved by this partnership but it is clear that there is a need for a more operational resource to enable the ambitions identified by the Alliance to be realised.
Working in collaboration with Macmillan Cancer Support, who are funding this post for two years; this will provide much needed additional capacity on patient and public engagement, not only to build the foundations of effective and sustainable engagement mechanisms, but also to build the confidence and capacity for colleagues to continue this work themselves.
