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.

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. Naturally, we've had to make some immediate changes to our cancer support services in response to this pandemic to protect anyone who relies on us.

It's understandable that you may be feeling particularly anxious about this and we'll be introducing online, telephone and outreach support to make sure we're still here for you.

To help support our service uses through this difficult time we have set up a Facebook Support Group for anyone who has been affected by cancer. We've also put together lots of practical advice to help you if you have to self-isolate.

“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.”
