Aneurin Bevan's Suspected Cancer Health Optimisation and Prehabilitation Project

Funding has been awarded from Wales Cancer Network and Bevan Commission Innovation fund for a Suspected Cancer Health Optimisation and Prehabilitation Project.

As part of the project, the team are keen to carry out a review to hear from people who have recently experienced a referral to rule out or confirm a cancer diagnosis.

The review will focus on information specifically about nutrition, exercise, wellbeing as well as smoking and alcohol at a time when individuals are being investigated for a suspected cancer and will help the team improve what information they provide.

The project team would like to understand the information individuals received, or would have liked to have received, in relation to their health and wellbeing.

The team are calling on individuals who have experienced a referral to rule out or confirm a cancer diagnosis, that are willing to share their patient experience by filling in an online access to health and wellbeing information questionnaire. The questionnaire should only take approximately 10 minutes to complete, and your views will be used to plan future information provided to people. 

Dr Tom Howson, Bevan Commission Innovation Lead said:

"The Bevan Commission is delighted to be supporting this innovative project at Aneurin Bevan University Health Board and is excited about the positive impact this could have on the health and wellbeing of patients with suspected Cancer across Wales."
