Before your treatment begins, they’ll be in touch to talk you through what to expect and answer your questions.
We’re proud to be a collaborative, multidisciplinary team, working together to give you the best possible care. As well as our exceptional nurses and clinical nurse specialists, we’re made up of physiotherapists, occupational therapists and healthcare support experts.

Everyone’s different, and we know your hopes, fears and experiences will be completely unique to you. That’s why we take the time to really talk things through, explain what’s happening, answer your questions and put your mind at ease.
We’ll make sure you understand your treatment, how to safely store your medicines, and what to do if you’re feeling unwell between visits. If you’re going to be administering your treatment yourself, we’ll teach you how to do it safely and confidently at home, then check in on you regularly to make sure you’re happy and progressing well.

It’s a telephone advice service run by experienced nurses and clinicians, who are available 24/7 to talk through your worries and give you advice.
