HCCN WIN Health Inequalities Challenge Prize

Words cannot express how happy we are right now.

We were chosen as finalists for the Health Inequalities Challenge Prize that Cambridgeshire and Peterborough Integrated Care System ran with Cambridgeshire Community Foundation, which meant we were given £4,000 to conduct research into what matters for those going through cancer.

The report that was created highlighted just how loved HCCN is by both those who use the services and external clinical staff. It also highlighted some inequalities that those going through cancer face, which we are already creating plans to address.

Today was a day we presented our findings of the report, along with seven other finalists. After the presentations (and a spot of lunch), three prizes were handed out to help with continued development from said findings. We are unbelievably excited and proud to share that we were chosen as the winners and awarded £20,000!!!

Jackie who many of you may have spoken to during this research, was the one who presented the findings and also there to collect the award with Jan.

Thank you to every single person who has taken part in our research, we are very excited about implementing our new plans, which we will share in due course, but right now we are numb with excitement and wanted you to be the first to hear this amazing news.
