As a Lay Volunteer
The Wales Cancer Bank has a Lay Liaison and Ethics group (LLEG) that is comprised of patients, lay members and project staff. This group meets 3-4 times per year in Cardiff and has an important role to play to ensure lay members are actively engaged in the operational decisions and future development of the project. The patient members can also give their invaluable advice as people who are going through, or have gone through, the cancer journey.
The Lay Liaison and Ethics group were involved in drafting the patient information sheet and consent form, which was part of the submission to the NHS Research Ethics committee when the project first started in 2004, and they are still consulted on proposed changes to the documentation prior to implementation. The group helps to raise awareness of the WCB with patient groups and organisations such as Rotary, and they regularly review the communication action plan to ensure the public, patient groups, health professionals and research communities are kept up to date with developments.
