Supporting you

Northern services

Patient-led support

Would you be interested in joining a patient-led-support group in North Devon….if you would like to join please call the Colorectal Nurses on 01271 322464 for more information and details of our next meeting. The purpose of this group is to provide a support network for patients who have had experience of bowel cancer, either currently or in the past.

Alternatively, If you would prefer support from fellow patients you can access the North Devon Bowel Cancer Support Group via our Facebook Page. This is a ‘closed group’ and can only be accessed by fellow colorectal patients.

Eastern services

Colorectal cancer support

We arrange four monthly patient coffee mornings for patients and carers to give us feedback on the service at all stages of the cancer treatment. This helps us to improve the service we provide.

FORCE Cancer Charity works locally to support anyone affected by cancer and will work closely with the people involved in your treatment. Find out more about the support FORCE can offer at forcecancercharity.co.uk.

Health and wellbeing clinics are also offered to patients with a diagnosis of cancer in order to help support patients through their pathway. Your nursing team will be able to provide you with more information on the structure and content of these sessions.
