Dumfries and Galloway Health and Social Care Partnership and Macmillan are inviting third sector organisations to a series of engagement sessions on Improving the Cancer Journey (ICJ) within the region.
The new Macmillan-funded service is expected to be fully up and running in Dumfries and Galloway by September this year.
It aims to transform the lives of people affected by cancer by providing tailored practical and personal support, shaped around their individual needs.
Before this, the engagement sessions are being held to connect with the third sector to fully detail what ICJ involves.
They will also look at what the third sector in the region is doing currently to help people with cancer and, moving forward, what else they could do by adapting, developing, or exploring current or new services. They will also agree how the new service will engage with providers on an on-going basis.
Third Sector Dumfries and Galloway is helping to facilitate the sessions and asks organisations to book spaces as soon as possible.
The session will start at 1pm but there is the opportunity to network from 12.30pm and post session.
