Hampshire Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust (HHFT), which runs hospitals in Andover, Basingstoke and Winchester, is offering an opportunity for members of the local community to hear about cancer care for the future at HHFT at a virtual event.

The free event will take place from 6:30pm on Monday 22 November 2021 and is open to all members of the public and Foundation Trust members.

Lead cancer nurse Vicki Havercroft Dixon will share some of the exciting work happening at Hampshire Hospitals, including personalised cancer care and pathway improvement.

Clinical matron Edit Galambos will also talk through work happening to develop the trust’s chemotherapy units, whilst chemotherapy nurse specialist Marion Woodhouse will be talking through the role of clinical nurse specialists and how they benefit the patient experience.

Patient voice representatives Cancer Services Partnership will also be sharing how their collaborative relationship with Hampshire Hospitals aids the trust in keeping the patient voice at the forefront of decision making.

Alex Whitfield, chief executive at HHFT will join the speakers to share a brief update on the trust.

Attendees will have the opportunity to ask the expert speakers and executive team questions in real time.

Alex Whitfield, chief executive at Hampshire Hospitals, said: “I’m very excited to offer this opportunity to open our doors, however virtually, to give our community first-hand insight into the incredible work of our teams.

“Those who have joined us for past events will have heard about how we were able to continue the highest standard of cancer care through COVID-19. This event is a great opportunity for you to hear how we are looking beyond as we think about what cancer care can look like now and as we move towards a new hospital in Hampshire.

“I look forward to seeing you there!”
