Specific Site Groups

Talking things over often helps and many people find it encouraging to chat to others who have been through similar experiences. We have groups for people affected by specific types of cancer, and specialist nurses often attend these meetings to give advice and support.

Details of these meetings, and information about special events or guest speakers can be found in our newsletter, or by ringing 01384 231232.
