The Royal Marsden Event

The EVEREST-HN Launch Event

Developing a patient-reported symptom-based risk stratification system to improve the care of suspected HN cancer referrals

This event will be held on Tuesday 20th September 2022 at The Royal Marsden Hospital.

EVEREST-HN stands for ‘EVolution of a patiEnt-REported symptom-based risk stratification sySTem to redesign the suspected Head & Neck cancer referral pathway’.

EVEREST-HN is an ambitious research programme involving collaborations with researchers from across the UK based in numerous NHS institutions and 7 UK universities.

EVEREST-HN aims to improve the suspected head and neck cancer pathway by asking patients referred to hospital to tell us more about their symptoms before they are reviewed by a specialist. The specialist will then review this information, before the patient comes to hospital, coordinate the next steps in the patients care with the goal of speeding up diagnosis, improving the patient experience and optimising the use of healthcare resources, compared to the current system.

The launch event will focus on:

-Describing EVEREST-HN work package plans

-Identifying Work Package roadblocks

-Sharing the patient experience of the suspected head and neck cancer pathway

-Outlining the opportunities for PIs and Associate PIs in EVEREST-HN


This will be a free hybrid event, running both face-to-face and virtually.
