Changes to our Cancer Support Services during Covid-19

We've announced a number of immediate changes to our support services in response to the coronavirus pandemic. We're working hard to introduce new services so we can continue to be there for as many people as we can who need support.

Cait Allen, Wessex Cancer Trust’s CEO said:

“If you have cancer you might be worried about how coronavirus affects you. The most important thing is to follow the advice of your healthcare team. Because people with cancer may be at a higher risk of infection, we’re going to be constantly reviewing and evolving our services to protect the people who rely on us for support, whilst still being there for them as much as we can. It’s understandable that people with cancer may be feeling particularly anxious at this time and we’re going to be introducing a number of new measures in the coming days and weeks to ensure as many people as possible continue to get help.”

We've set up a Facebook group for anyone who needs remote support. We're also in the process of introducing online and telephone support for anyone living with cancer. This will include videos and helpful advice, online streaming of classes and meditation and telephone counselling. We'll release more information as soon as these services become available.
