A copy of Every Step of the Way, our recent publication telling 13 stories illustrating the difference independent advocacy support makes to older people affected by cancer was sent to Annette Brooke, MP for Mid Dorset and North Poole Constituency. It was sent by project partner Help & Care who have been in regular contact with Annette in her role as joint-chair of the All Party Parliamentary Group on Breast Cancer.

Annette was really impressed by the publication and sent Help & Care a letter which said: “Thank you for sending me the booklet “Every Step of the Way”. This is a fantastic way of showing how treatment in the Health Service and associated services can be better accessed by older patients with the support of a well-trained advocate.”

Hi Res cover

She went on to ask for an additional 2 copies to give to her co-chairs on the All Party Parliamentary Group on Breast Cancer which Help & Care were happy to supply.
