THE STORIES of cancer patients at Dorset County Hospital will be told at a special event in Dorchester.

The Macmillan Patient Experience Team has been listening carefully to the tales of dozens of local people at the hospital and their experiences of cancer care.

The team will now be telling those stories to celebrate the many positives and look at how patients might be served even better in the future. Any patients diagnosed with cancer at Dorset County Hospital in the last two years are also invited to contribute to the Listening to Patients event at the Dorford Centre from 3.30pm to 5pm today, Thursday, June 26.

Anyone who wants to know more can contact the Macmillan Patient Experience Team on 01305 254521 or email
