Nursing Support

Following cancer diagnosis and treatment it may be that you need some additional nursing support in your home.

A wide range of local nursing services are available to make life easier for you and for your family. This can range from district nurses who can provide care such as dispensing your medication to cleaning and dressing wounds to specialist palliative care nurses who can advise on symptoms specific to cancer such as pain control and sickness. They also understand what you are going through and can provide emotional support to you and your carers.

More intensive nursing services are available to people with advanced cancers living in their own homes.
