On the 6th March 2019 the Colorectal Specialist Nurse Team launched our first official Bowel Cancer Support Group.
The group is tailored for patients and their carers/relatives who have been affected by bowel cancer and undergone major surgery. The group gives patients an opportunity to meet other people and share similar experiences.
Going forward the group will have continued support from our nurse specialist team and other health professionals, with varying guest speakers for the first hour followed by an hour to network and offer mutual support.
The support group will be held on a bi-monthly basis at The Maggie’s Centre.
If you require any further information or would like to attend, please contact the Colorectal Specialist Nurses on 0161 918 7001.
