Currently, 2.5 million people are living with cancer in UK with upto four million people predicted to live with cancer in 2030. However, breast cancer is one of the most commonly diagnosed in the UK, with over 51,000 new cases and causing over 11,000 deaths annually. Cancer survival rates have improved over the past 40 years within the UK; thereby, putting pressure on the National Health Service; to move towards self-management and Breast Cancer Care (BCC), UK, endorses this. Along with this, the UK independent Cancer Taskforce recommendations focus on reducing inequalities, improving cancer outcomes and access to health and social care. However, Cancer Support Centre (CSC) in Sheffield and the BCC have noted a significantly low uptake of their services by the Black Minority Ethnic (BME) women including the Black African and Caribbean (BAC) women who's access to a culturally sensitive service is not fully known. This study aims to explore the experiences of the BAC female breast cancer survivors in the UK and contribute to a broader understanding of how this group accesses and takes up available support services. Hence, the research questions: What are the lived experiences of BAC female breast cancer survivors in the UK regarding their accesses to available support services? Are the information and support services for this group culturally sensitive to them? This qualitative descriptive phenomenological study uses digitally recorded semi-structured interview data from approximately 10-15 BAC female breast cancer survivors of 18 years and above living in the UK. Recorded data will be transcribed and simultaneously analysed using Colaizzi (1978) descriptive phenomenology.
