Support and advice
One of the cornerstones of our services is practical and emotional support – whether you need advice on finances or accommodation, help with the special needs of children, or even if you just need to talk to someone.
To support patients and their loved ones through the roller coaster of diagnosis, treatment and survivorship, we offer emotional support and assistance with our highly trained support services staff. Our staff have backgrounds in nursing or social work, and are all experienced in counselling and offering support.
Emotional support can take place face-to-face at home or in hospital, over the telephone, or at one of our accommodation centres. Our staff can provide initial support as well as refer you to a health professional or associated specialist should further counselling be required.
