A call-out from one of our members:
Seeking trans* gender (transsexual, transgender, non-binary) participants who have had personal experiences of cancer care to take part in a Patient Participant Involvement (PPI) meeting. The meeting can take place by Skype, for those who are unable to travel. More info visit the website (Dr Zowie Davy at the University of Lincoln and Dr Julie Fish at De Montfort University, re: LGBT people’s experiences of cancer care proposed study)
