'100 Voices' project at The Christie Hospital

Referrals are now being accepted into the ‘100 Voices’ Project at The Christie, which has been developed with support from the Christie charity and The Whitworth Art Gallery.

Any patients or carers who meet the following broad criteria can apply to participate in this project:

• Affected by or caring for someone with cancer
• Treated at least once at The Christie
• At least 12 months from diagnosis

Initial sessions will be run as follows:

11th / 12th Jan at 12.30pm; 1st Feb at 12.30pm; finishing no later than 3.30pm

and will be held at the Whitworth Art Gallery, Meeting Room 1.

20 patients will be accepted into each workshop, with further sessions being arranged for March and April. A member of the Christie Patient Reference Group and Ben Hayworth, MacMillan Survivorship Network Manager will be supervising each session. Patients can also self-refer and should be instructed to email Ben Hayworth securely on 100voices@christie.nhs.uk in order to make themselves known.

Patients can come from any disease group and the project is looking for a diverse and inclusive cohort. Support will be provided for patients for whom English is not spoken and/or other access issues as part of this work, and welcome patients from diverse backgrounds. Travel expenses can also be claimed by people participating in this project.

For further information including aims/objectives and expected benefits to patients/outcomes, please contact Ben Hayworth.
