We can help you prioritise the ‘what-to-ask questions’ so you leave your appointment with the information you need.

"I'm struggling to support a loved one"

Supporting someone with cancer can be difficult. It’s understandable if you feel frustrated, frightened or unsure at times. You can talk to us about it.

 



"I've been told my cancer isn't curable. What can I expect?"

We can give emotional support and practical information about side effects of treatment or symptoms of your cancer, and the options available to you.
