Our meetings are currently virtual

Since having to suspend our regional support group meetings due to Covid-19 restrictions, we have been hosting virtual meetings using Zoom and these are proving to be very successful.

We host virtual meetings twice a month on:
the first Wednesday at 16.00
the third Monday at 18.30.

If you have not already registered with us
for our virtual meetings and would like to participate please register HERE.

Useful Zoom information is available HERE.

Next meetings:

Mon, June 21, 2021 at 18:30 - 19:30

Further meetings will be scheduled once we have some confirmation of the restrictions status from 21 June.

Comments from attendees:

   I am so glad I found out about this organisation the medical profession should be highlighting it to all new patients.

   The facilitator did an excellent job making sure everyone had the opportunity to speak. The timings were perfect.

   Realising we are not alone (me as a carer and my husband) that it is ok to be really tired, ok to sometimes feel brain dead.

   A major point was to learn how others coped, how some felt after an operation, how others felt after radiology etc.

   This ‘course’ has reaffirmed that I am going in the right direction and that other people are there to support me through the rest of my journey.

   Fairly happy with my thinking at the moment. Good to see people in the same boat though, it's not always easy talking to people who haven't had the experience.

   The session was sensibly structured and made good use of time available. Involving medical team staff gave people the chance to ask questions and raise issues not necessarily possible in the clinic setting.

   As I do not know anyone who has had cancer of the head or neck I felt very isolated from people I know as they did not understand the problems of eating, drinking and swallowing that the treatment can cause, I can now talk about the issues I have with people with similar problems and get more positive help.
