John Rouse - Patient Panel Member
John Rouse

“I am a member of the North Derbyshire Cancer Action Group (hospital based service user group), the Yorkshire and Humber Site Specific Group for Skin, the North Trent Consumer Research Panel, and the Yorkshire and Humber Patient Partnership Group.”  I am also an active member of the Facebook group “Melanomamates”

“I have recently completed five years on the NCRI Melanoma Clinical Studies Group, and a year on the NICE Guideline Development Group for Melanoma.”

“Before that I was on the National Awareness and Early Diagnosis Initiative Work stream 2 (onward referral within and between primary and secondary care). I have been an involvement coach for Cancer Research UK and I am a book reviewer for Macmillan Cancer Support.”

I am very interested in how scientific advances are introduced, how patient data is managed and secured and the impact, both positive and negative of technology in influencing patient care.
