Newsletter - The Voice
As ICPV grows we thought the idea of newsletter would help keep members up-to-date with all our activities.
We need a regular supply of material if this is to be successful. It does not have to be related to ICPV activity and it would be good to receive feedback from members’ involvement in
other groups, recommendations
regarding articles, events attended, opportunities for promoting ICPV etc.
We hope to produce this quarterly but will start with bi-annualy.
We have recently produced our second review. This report covers our achievments since our first review was published in 2011.
We hope it will give you a more indepth knowledge to who ICPV are, what ICPV do and why we do it.
We have prepared this leaflet encouraging patients to ask about clinical trials, donation of tissue for research and involvement in local cancer network service development and research read more
Our members occasional contribute to journal publications read more
