Breast cancer support group

 

The Breast Cancer Support group

Meetings are informal and are based on ‘peer to peer’ support.  No need to ‘book’, just turn up. It’s an environment in which you can informally chat with other patients and carers who have had an experience of breast cancer diagnosis.

There are 2 meetings per month (one held during the day and one in the evening):

  • The evening meeting is held on the first Wednesday of every month from 7.00 pm – 9.00 pm in theLecture Hall, Villa 8, (Post Graduate Medical Centre), Colchester Hospital, Turner Road, Colchester, Essex, CO4 5JL.
  • We have started a trial ‘daytime’ support group session (which will be reviewed in Spring 2019).  It is on the last Monday of every month (10.00 am to 12.00 noon).  It is held in the Breast Unit MDT meeting room, 1st Floor, Gainsborough Wing, Colchester Hospital, Turner Road, Colchester, Essex, CO4 5JL.

For further information, please contact Victoria Plumridge via email.
