What is the Patient Support Liaison Team / Cancer Champions
In May 2018 we introduced a non-clinical team to help support patients and their families who are facing a recent chronic diagnosis. This could be cancer, dementia, or any other serious incapacitating disease.
If you have had a recent life changing diagnosis we will send you a letter to introduce ourselves, including photographs, so that you know who we are. We will follow up the letter with a telephone call shortly after to see if there is anything you need or anything we can help you, your carers or family with.
You can ring us direct to order your medication, make appointments, listen to any problems/concerns you may have. We can provide you with information about services that may help and sort out things quickly on your behalf.
If we do not know the answer to your questions we will find someone who does. Our clinical Lead is Jenny Williams, ANP, who is always here to advise us.
If you do not feel like talking you can always simply email us with any queries or problems.
We promise to always listen and take the time to help you in any way we can.
