Research topic

To study the preferences for follow up care of seldom heard groups previously treated for colorectal cancer to inform practice and policy. Seldom heard groups are those not commonly cited as responding to previous studies on colorectal cancer follow up; for the purposes of the study the groups whose views are sought are non-native language speakers, minority ethnic groups, and newly arrived migrants.
