What else can I do to make a difference?

Join the Patient and Carer Advisory Group

The Patient and Carer Advisory Group provides patients and carers an opportunity to improve the Trust’s current and future services and the care provided to patients.

The self‑run group works with the Trust on a variety of projects and committees where the views of patients and carers can help make the hospital a better place for patients.

For more about the group and how to get involved, contact the Quality Assurance Team on 020 7808 2176.

Volunteer at the Biomedical Research Centre

The Biomedical Research Centre (BRC) is a partnership between The Royal Marsden and The Institute for Cancer Research which supports the innovative research that takes place. Any patient, carer or member of the public can become involved with the research undertaken at BRC. For more information on how you can participate, visit cancerbrc.org

Other ways to make a difference

We value the feedback we receive from our patients and we try to provide as many ways as possible for them to share their experiences and have their say in how our services are run. There are a variety of opportunities for you to become involved, depending on how much time you have, the areas you’re interested in and how you want to take part.

For example, you can contribute by email, by post or by telephone, as well as attending a meeting or joining a committee. Some projects will be short term while other projects may continue over a longer period of time.

For more about the different ways patients can get involved, call The Royal Marsden Help Centre on 0800 783 7176 (Freephone) or see the ‘Make a difference’ leaflets which are available from the Help Centres or at the Viewpoint stations.
