The Patient Support Working Group has been active in ECL since 2007 and is currently made up of participants from the Faroe Islands to Turkey and Ireland to Italy.
The group and subgroups are chaired by volunteers from our member leagues and the ECL secretariat plays a supporting role in organising meetings, linking members with the relevant EU institutions and sharing health policy information.Supporting patients, especially via the Patient Support Working Group (PSWG), is one of the most important areas of work for ECL!
The current working areas for the Patient Support Working Group are:
1. Employment and cancer patients
2. Access to Financial Services
3. Psychosocial Screening and Support
5. Palliative Care
