Current opportunities to get involved

NHS England and NHS Improvement are working with Breast Cancer Now to recruit paid patient representatives

The project aims to improve patient care and outcomes by increasing prescribing of Tamoxifen as a preventative measure for women at increased risk of developing breast cancer, and reduce the number of women developing breast cancer overall.

The representatives will help to shape a new programme to increase the uptake of Tamoxifen as a breast cancer prevention drug. To apply, you need to have experience taking Tamoxifen for breast cancer prevention, or have been referred and considered at increased risk but not offered Tamoxifen.

Deadline for applications 11:59pm on 31 January 2021
