Today Vivien Mansfield and Suzanne Robinson who are the Learning Disability Healthcare Facilitators for Merseycare came to talk to the group about Breast Cancer and Cervical Cancer. We went through the easy read booklets that Merseycare have published and they were really easy to understand, explained things well and the pictures were clear.
It was a hard subject to talk about and this course has been very hard hitting – but it is important that we understand our rights. One person said “I now know it is my right to have a smear test. The nurse cannot tell me I don’t need one. I am going to make sure I have one”
Not everyone in the group realised that men could have Breast Cancer too and it was really informative.
We are nearing the end of this course but it has been fantastic – thank you to our members for their commitment and to Vivien and Suzanne for all of their hardwork.» Back to News
