Development of an interactive geographical map of cancer physiotherapists

ACPOPC member, Clare Lait, a specialist cancer physiotherapist who works privately and for the NHS in Gloucestershire and Liz O’Riordan, an Consultant Oncoplastic Breast surgeon (diagnosed with breast cancer last year), who works in Ipswich are passionate about improving access to specialist cancer rehabilitation across the UK and have come up with the idea of an interactive geographical map of cancer physiotherapists. 
 
Please see the letter from them below.

Clare has a website under the trademark Cancer Physio UK (cancer-physio.com – the current site is under development and will be much simpler), which is almost ready to go live, that has an interactive map on it making it easy for people to find physiotherapists, in the NHS, privately or in the third sector.  Clare and Liz are keen to find as many physiotherapists as they can who are either happy to be put on the map with their contact number, geographical location and specialty and how to refer. This is with particular emphasis on those in an outpatient or community setting. Alternately, if people would prefer, Clare can put a dot with no contact details but keep a confidential database that Clare can contact the individual physiotherapist from, if an enquiry comes in for that area. 

If  you are happy to be listed in Clare's directory please visit the site cancer-physio.com or contact Clare (clare.lait@cancer-physio.com).
