Talking about cancer can be difficult for patients, family members and friends.  Here at the Cancer Support Centre we can provide a safe place to discuss any fears or concerns about cancer, its treatment and effects.  Providing a drop in service Monday to Friday and run by health care professionals ~ we can provide support, advice and information to anyone affected.  We also provide a range of services to support anyone at this difficult time, including Welfare Advice and courses designed to help patients and carers’ cope.
