Improved care

NHS TAYSIDE’S breast cancer team is launching an innovative project which involves working with patients to help further improve breast cancer care in local hospitals.

Breakthrough Breast Cancer’s ‘The Service Pledge for Breast Cancer’ will allow NHS Tayside to gather patients’ views of their breast care services and highlight any issues to be addressed. NHS Tayside can then work towards making more improvements to the service based on these views with help from Breakthrough Breast Cancer.

The first step in the process is a questionnaire which has already been sent out to eligible patients. The return date for these questionnaires is flexible and the NHS Tayside breast cancer team is asking that as many patients as possible return their survey so that all views can be taken into account.
