We’re delighted that the Minister for Health & Social
Services in Wales, Professor Mark Drakeford AM, has endorsed the
Checklist. He said:
“The Quality Checklist correlates well with our aims set out
in our Cancer Deliver Plan. Patients should have access to a key
worker to support them through the care pathway and have the
opportunity to have their needs captured in a care plan”.
We have now launched the Quality Checklist in four areas across the
Throughout Prostate Cancer Awareness Month in March 2013, we asked
politicians to encourage local health care providers to adopt the
Checklist in their area. On 13 March, 27 campaigners joined us
in Westminster to speak to MPs about why good quality care is so
important for all men affected by prostate cancer. Over 100 MPs pledged their
support for the Checklist. In the Scottish Parliament on 28
March, our campaigners spoke to over 50 MSPs about the importance of
universal quality care in Scotland. We are happy to say that now
all MSPs have given their support of the Checklist.
