What is Get back on track?
Our Get Back on Track service usually lasts around 10 weeks. During this time you will have four telephone appointments with one of our Specialist Nurses, and each call will last between 30 to 45 minutes.
The telephone appointments will aim to support you and help you make positive changes to your behaviour and lifestyle which should mean that your fatigue improves over time. Positive changes might be things like increasing exercise slowly and gradually, increasing enjoyable social activities, getting back into hobbies, or changing your diet slightly.
This service was highly commended in 2013 for The Quality in Care Oncology Awards and was shortlisted for the Nursing Times Award for cancer nursing.
The service was developed in collaboration with King's College London and has been effective in improving fatigue (download the trial results).
