Re: Support during treatment for women in Sheffield

Hi thank you for your offer of a lift ( love your username BTW) 17th is a bit close to my chemo treatment so probably won't make that one.
Thanks again

Thank you Donna - we are holding pilots in various locations across the UK so do keep an eye out on our website if this is something you would be interested in.

Hi Collette,

What a great idea, I do hope the pilot is a success and can, in time, be rolled out across other areas.

Hello Cassie,

 

The events will take place at the Cancer Support Centre in Sheffield, patients from other hospitals are more than welcome to attend - just make sure you register with us first by calling or emailing us. 

 

These are pilot services which we are trialling so we don't currently have any taking place in Chesterfield as you say. However we are launching a Moving Forward Course in Chesterfield this month. These courses are designed for when you have finished your hospital based treatment for primary breast cancer - you can find out more about it on our website or by speaking to your Breast Care Nurse.

 

If we can be of any assistance please do get in touch. 

 

Warm wishes,

 

Collette.

Hi Collette

Where abouts do the meetings take place? I'm currently under Chesterfield hospital but I don't think they do these there at the moment
