South West London Collaborative Commissioning

Exciting opportunity to be involved in a focus group to help develop the PSA (prostate specific antigen) passport

PSA Passport for men having primary care follow-up of prostate cancer

We are looking for patient, public, service user and carer representatives to assist with the development of a new resource for men who are having had their care transferred to primary care.

Why?

We want to develop and test out a new patient held record that would help men record their PSA (prostate specific antigen) result and assist in greater self-management in their follow up. This would be a paper patient held record initially. We want to make this resource as user friendly as possible. We are very pleased to have been successful to have been awarded a grant to carry out this work by the Queens Nursing Institute through their Innovation and Leadership Programme 2017.

What is the requirement?

We are looking for men who have been treated for prostate cancer, or their Carers, to attend a focus group. We would also like help to give comments on the draft passport before it goes to print.

When?

The focus group is likely to take place at 120 The Broadway in Wimbledon and would involve around three hours of time commitment in total. The date of the focus group is still to be confirmed.

Expenses

All relevant out of pocket expenses will be paid to enable you to participate in meetings. These include travel, parking, child care costs and Carers’ costs. Payment of expenses will be monthly via an invoice.

If this is something you would like to get involved with, please email clare.thomas@swlondon.nhs.ukEngagement Manager for more information.
