Breast cancer support group

 

The Breast Cancer Support group

Supported by Clinical Nurse Specialists, the support group is for patients and / or carers of those who have had a diagnosis of breast cancer recently or in the past.

Meetings tend not to have a fixed structure or agenda.  Just an environment in which you can informally chat with other patients and carers who have had an experience of breast cancer diagnosis.  Tea, coffee and biscuits are provided (and sometimes homemade cake!)

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

  • A support group runs on the first Wednesday of every month from 7.00 – 9.00 pm.  The meeting on Wednesday, 5 September will be held in the Post Graduate Centre at Colchester Hospital.  Thereafter, meetings will be held in the breast unit MDT meeting room,  Gainsborough wing at Colchester Hospital.
  • The second monthly meeting will be held on the last Monday of every month (unless it’s a bank holiday). The first meeting is scheduled on 24 September from 2.00 – 4.00 pm in the breast unit MDT meeting room, Gainsborough wing at Colchester Hospital.
