We provide emotional, physical and practical support to people affected by cancer, whether it is the patient themselves, their families or carers. This can be following diagnosis, after treatment, or anytime after suffering long-term consequences of cancer and its treatment. People can either be referred by a healthcare professional, or they can self-refer to the service. We offer a Holistic Needs Assessment (HNA) in the community (usually the patient’s home) and following this self assessment a plan is developed by the patient and nurse to identify needs and provide a range of resources to meet these needs. This may include: being an ongoing point of contact for information and support. Information about self management. Signposting / referral to other services. Information on local Health & Wellbeing Events, Coffee drop-ins, etc. Emotional support. Link to hospital team.
