Dorset’s Cancer in Older People Development Group

Leave a comment

The Cancer in Older People Development Group of Dorset Macmillan Advocacy met for the first time on 12 August at the offices of Dorset Advocacy in Dorchester.  Formerly known as the Dorset Local Cancer Champions Board the group had held a workshop to review and refresh its aims following the awarding of 3 year’s regional funding from Macmillan Cancer Support.  The workshop resulted in a new name, revised terms of reference and the re-election of the chair, Graham Willetts.
