North East London Early Diagnosis Centre views wanted


UCLH Cancer Collaborative has secured NHS England funding to develop a new cancer diagnostic service for north east London. The Early Diagnosis Centre (EDC) is the first of its kind and will improve early diagnosis for patients with conditions that increase their risk of developing cancer, as well as monitoring patients with early stage cancer who do not need treatment right away.

The North East London Early Diagnosis Centre is due to open at Mile End Hospital (part of Barts Health) in December 2019. The first phase for the centre will consist of two endoscopy suites and two ultrasound rooms, co-located with an existing CT scanner. The second phase is to add an MRI machine for which funding is currently being sought. For more information, please click here

COGS, Combining Opinions to Generate Solutions, is working with UCLH Cancer Collaborative to seek patients’ views and opinions about the North East London Early Diagnosis Centre at Mile End Hospital.

The survey can be accessed at https://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/MyViews/ and will only take a few minutes to complete; there will also be a series of community outreach activities to ensure those who cannot access the online version have their opinions included.
