Ten breast cancer survivors have hit the cat walk at the West Middlesex University Hospital Trust to celebrate the trust signing up to a patient pledge scheme on services.
The acute trust joins 25 other hospitals that have introduced a “breakthrough service pledge”, drawn up in partnership with patients and the charity Breakthrough Breast Cancer.
All breast cancer patients at the trust will now be given a copy of the pledge, which sets out the standards of service patients can expect and goals for improvement.
Macmillan breast care nurse Natashia Cedeno, who proposed the fashion show, said: “The breakthrough service pledge that was launched has really helped us professionals to highlight the issues that matter most to our patients.”
She added: “The models all had a wonderful time and they proved that once you can beat breast cancer and live a glamorous lifestyle once again.”
The fashion show, which took place on 30th October, was also attended by health minister Ann Keen. Every model was individually styled by John Lewis Kingston and Marks and Spencer.
