Bowel cancer patients are invited to attend the free support group at George Eliot Hospital from 22 June 2021, following a year of virtual meetings.
The group, hosted by the colorectal clinical nurse specialists, will resume their meetings every fourth Tuesday each month from 6 -8pm in Raveloes conference room on the first floor the hospital.
Patients can share their experiences and offer valuable support to each other at these informal meetings.
Colorectal Nurse Specialist, Louise Roberts said: “It is vitally important that colorectal cancer patients feel supported following their diagnosis. Resuming our group is an important way that patients can ask questions and learn from others who have experienced similar conditions.”
“The groups also organise events to support the hospital, including a quiz and sponsored walk. Last year their fundraising helped to buy two patient trolleys for our Solomon Macey endoscopy unit and a new laparoscopic camera for our theatres. We can’t thank the group enough for their kind donations.”
Patients interested in joining the group can contact Support Group Chairman John Turner on 07747 623952.
Please enter via the main entrance. The meetings will be COVID-19 secure and will be fully risk assessed before the group can resume. Patient should wear a face mask when visiting the hospital.
Patients are reminded that the support group does not replace their usual appointments.
