We do more than excellent palliative care
We’re here for people affected by cancer at diagnosis, during treatment and increasingly, on the way back to health. For example, we provide expert information booklets for people affected by cancer, their families and carers, certified by the Information Standard.
Order booklets about financial information and employment issues which your patients may be experiencing.
Order information about practical issues, such as diet and how to cope with fatigue, and the emotional effects of living with cancer for your patients.
Order from our series of information booklets written specifically for carers, covering topics such as financial help, practical support, and combining working and caring.
Order a range of expert cancer information about different cancer types and treatments for your patients. All of our information is written and reviewed by specialists.
