Facing a stem cell transplant can be incredibly tough and at Anthony Nolan we want to make sure that people feel supported every step of the way. We do this by producing information and support for people before, during and after a transplant.
It’s so important that everything we do meets the needs of people affected by blood cancer and blood disorders. We know that the best way to achieve this is by making sure that the people who’ve been through these experiences are at the heart of what we do.
That’s where you come in. If you or your partner/ relative have been affected by blood cancer or a blood disorder, have had a stem cell transplant, and have ideas about how we can develop support and information, we would love to hear from you. We don’t expect you to be a medical expert in your condition, treatment, medications or the NHS - your personal experience will prove invaluable.
Being part of the panel can involve as much or as little input as you’d like. Let us know what you’re interested in and we’ll only contact you when these opportunities come up. The type of things we contact you about include your experiences of stem cell transplant, your ideas about what information and support might help and your thoughts on what we are already doing.
You will be supported in your role by our Patient & Family Engagement manager, by email. If you incur expenses as part of your involvement with the panel (e.g. travel) we’ll reimburse them in line with Anthony Nolan’s expenses policy.
Due to the nature of this role you need to be 18 or over to volunteer.
