Patient Stories

With an increasing number of people living with cancer moving through the healthcare system, it is crucial to understand their experiences. By understanding cancer experience and outcomes we can develop solutions to support individual need and to ultimately understand what will enable people living with cancer to take back control.

Macmillan’s ambition is to try to improve the lives of everyone affected by cancer. A big part of improving the overall outcomes and experiences of people living with cancer is to try and understand their needs and how these affect their outcomes. This enables us at Mid Cheshire Hospitals to design services and interventions to best meet and address these needs to improve overall outcomes and experiences.

Macmillan is the leading expert in this field and has supported a number of initiatives to improve knowledge and understanding of patients’ outcomes and experiences.

As part of the Macmillan-funded Upper GI Cancer Service redesign project we are fortunate to be able to share the experiences of former and existing patients who have been kind enough to share their personal stories as a source of information and comfort to others.

Every patient’s experience of cancer is different and these stories have been shared to offer an alternative perspective into the different care pathways, diagnosis, treatments, procedures and emotional journeys individuals have encountered.

Please click on the individual names on the left to read about the different experiences and how others have dealt with their diagnosis.

If these stories raise any queries or uncertainties or if you would like to share your own story please contact Vicky Woodall or Caroline Firth on 01270 273803 or email vicky.Woodall@mcht.nhs.uk.
