My name is John MacArtney and I am part of a team conducting research at the University of Oxford into peoples’ experiences of being diagnosed with lung cancer.
Why is this research important?
Research shows that people in England are often diagnosed with lung cancer later than in some other European countries and that this might be affecting survival rates.
However, we don’t really understand how factors that affect the speed of diagnosis vary between countries. Therefore we are working with colleagues in Sweden and Denmark to explore similarities and differences of cancer diagnosis between the countries.
Can you help?
Everybody’s story is different. Therefore if you live in England and have been diagnosed with lung cancer in the last six months, we would really like to hear from you.
What does participating involve?
Interviews can take place at a time and place that is convenient to you and simply involves us listening to your story about what happened to you.
