'Nutrition through the Cancer Journey' is a new project set up to develop an online nutrition resource for people affected by cancer.
This website, which is being developed with staff, patients, relatives/friends, will provide information and support to enable people to self-manage nutritional issues that may be encountered as a result of cancer symptoms or side effects of treatment.
Over the past six months lots of work has already been done to develop the website:
The project is currently looking at new ways for people affected by cancer and those in a caring role in the North of Scotland region to access nutrition information, including ways to improve eating and drinking with symptoms of cancer or side effects of treatment.
They are interested in finding out about your experience of obtaining nutrition information and your thoughts on how the service can be improved.

Coalition of Carers in Scotland is undertaking a survey to find out whether carers living in Scotland are aware of their rights. Since The Carers (Scotland) Act came into force last 1st April 2018, the legislation aimed to extend the rights of unpaid carers living in Scotland to make sure that they are able to have a life alongside their caring role.
