"...I am sure you may have some views you would like to put forward on these changes, which will come into effect in mid-July. The consumer representatives we have spoken to so far have been open in their feedback which has been positive, agreeing that the changes are both logical and will reduce some confusing duplication for people with breast cancer..."
As I research the net I can find an explanation of Consumer Representatives, a term that is perhaps lost on most of us as we don't have an awareness of same
Consumer representatives | Breast Cancer Network Australia (bcna.org.au)
Suggestion: a post on the forum to make us aware of who or what Consumer Representatives are or do and or if any of us may be interested to become a Consumer Representative
I have to agree with the comment above
"...the lack of Funding for the Mets Counselling Service was never mentioned in the email as being the reason for it being ‘dropped’ ... so does this mean that ‘if’ funding became available again, the Mets Counselling Service will be reinstated?..."
In my view this has rattled those that are Mets and those that are concerned they could become Mets......it takes a long time to build up confidence to natter on a forum or ring a helpline. Perhaps being moved along to another agency may not be the best outcome for some. If that does happen I do hope that your Member support person does a follow up to ensure that the person who rang looking for BCNA help was able to get help elsewhere
